Mrs. Morris outdoors, slumped in plush chair facing the
camera, under cloth canopy. Her left hand is curled back over
her left shoulder, her right rests on her knee. Off to the right edge of
the picture is visible a chair with a shawl or some sort of drapery
thrown over it. A
second print, closer cropped and printed
lighter, is identified in the Victoria and Albert records as an original
(1865) print; this identified as a modern copy.
The picture is closely related to
“Jane Morris reclining on divan”,
which incorporates the same setting from a radically different point of view.
