Scholarly Commentary


Mrs. Morris outdoors, seated in wicker chair facing right, with her left hand crossed to grasp the right edge of the chair and her left resting on the edge. A shawl draped across the chair has moved and is out of focus. A modern print showing the original compositional structure of the photograph is also in the V & A. This print was made in 1865 and is cropped and printed lighter than the modern print.
