The Story of St George - the Return of the Princess

This work is part of a set of four drawings attributed to Rosa Corder after stained glass windows by Dante Gabriel Rossetti . The head of St George is said to have been modelled on Charles Augustus Howell (1840-90), a rather controversial associate of the Pre-Raphaelites. Corder was an associate and mistress of Howell from 1873, she is considered by many to have been a forger of Rossetti drawings.
