Dante Gabriel Rossetti - Girl at a Lattice

oil on canvas
Fitzwilliam Museum
Painted just after Lizzie's death. the model was an Irish maid at the Ford Madox-Brown's house in Hampstead. The coral necklace belonged to Rossetti but the setting and jig seem to be from the Brown's house. Ford painted the same girl in Mauvais Sujet in 1863.
