Dante Gabriel Rossetti - Uncle Tom

pen and brown ink
4 x 4.5"
based on Uncle Tom's Cabin
Probably about 1852, the year Harriet Beecher Stowes book was published. It was very popular at the time and Rossetti obviously shared that enthusiasm, though apparently he could never actually read the book because of its 'sentimental afflictions',
