General Description

Date: 1863?

Scholarly Commentary


This drawing is one of the comical “Elephant Sketches” DGR made for Fanny Cornforth. Like the related sketch Money to the House, this “refers to the ‘Elephant's Hole’ where Fanny kept the money Rossetti sent her which she was able to save” (see Elzea, The Samuel and Mary R. Bancroft Jr. and Related Pre–Raphaelite Collections, 122 ).
