Scholarly Commentary


The identification of this picture with the beautiful Scotswoman “of no rigid virtue” is tentative. See also the three other pencil drawings of her executed in 1862, the head and shoulders drawing, the drawing with a bunch of grapes, and the drawing with a chain around her neck.
