Description: Elizabeth Siddal (1829-1862) Clerk Saunders inscribed 'By Lizzie R/Clerk Saunders' by William Michael Rossetti (on the reverse of the backing sheet) pencil, on paper, with partial watermark, unframed 3½ x 5½ in. (8.9 x 14 cm.)
Provenance: Dante Gabriel Rossetti. William Michael Rossetti and by descent in the family to the present owner.
Notes: The present drawing illustrates the same subject as lot 20, and is again related to the finished watercolour of 1857 in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Another version of the drawing, apparently known only from one of the glass negatives of the artist's work in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, is illustrated in the catalogue of the Siddal Exhibition held at Sheffield in 1991, p. 65.
