William Holman Hunt - portrait

thought to be of Isabella Waugh
oil on canvas
painted about 1866 and seems to have been unfinished before he set out for his trip to the Holy Land. He may just have run out of time. Isabella was one of the Waugh sisters, of which Hunt married two - Fanny (who died in 1866) and later Edith (in 1875). In English law this was technically illegal and the Waugh family were opposed to it.
