George Frederic Watts #2

Eliza Ann (d. 1872), the daughter of Thomas Ogilvy of Corrimony. This portrait was painted for her sister, Mrs Huth, in 1866, on the eve of her marriage to C.D. van Lennep and departure to Smyrna. Watts was struck by her beauty and sweet nature and touched that the sisters should be separated.
