Edward Burne-Jones - Green Summer

private collection
The first version of this work was done in 1864 as a watercolour. It features Georgina (in black, reading) and Louie and Jane Morris (holding the Peacock feather). This version was exhibited in 1865 at the Old Watercolour Society to rather mixed reviews. The oil seems to date to 1868 when it was bought by his patron William Graham.
