Leighton House, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. John Christian has recorded, in the 1975 Arts Council catalogue, that the painting was abandoned and the head cut out. William Graham acquired the head and during or after his ownership it was provided with a new body painted by Edward Clifford (1844-1907), reportedly from a needlework version of the original worked by Lady Burne-Jones. According to Clifford the reconstructed painting was then retouched by Burne-Jones.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
