Frederick Sandys - Love's Shadow

Modelled by a London actress - Miss Clive (Mary Emma Jones) who was also his lover and mother of his ten children! She was renowned as one of the greatest beauties of her time. It was begun whilst a poor Sandys was living with Rossetti in Cheyne Walk (London). Unfortunately Rossetti accused Sandys of plagiarism.
