Scholarly Commentary


This is the first print in the album of Jane Morris Photographs put together in 1933 by Gordon Bottomly. Mrs. Morris is seated, facing left. The scene is indoors. She is leaning forward over the back of a chair, with her arms clasping the chair. Her eyes are virtually closed.

Another print in the Victoria and Albert Museum is a smaller black and white copy.
