Charles Edward Perugini - Girl Reading

also known as A Fair Student
A view of a young woman seated on a marble garden bench reading from a book in her lap. She is wearing a white silken dress, medieval in style, and holds a sprig of blossom up to her neck as she reads. An orange is placed beside her on the bench to the left, plucked from the fruit and blossom laden tree behind.

He was married to Kate Dicknes but I don't think this is her.

just wondering where do you find your images? From auction houses? I don't use a pay service to look up auction house results and was just wondering if there was anywhere you could suggest besides your blog if you were looking to find images of obscure Victorian artists?
