A fine and delicate drawing of a young girl by Evelyn de Morgan, a Pre-Raphaelite English painter. She is renowned for her oil paintings which are full of Pre-Raphaelite imagery, spiritualistic symbolism and strong feminist undertones, which also show her remarkable skills at drawing. Her style is distinctive in its rich use of colour, allegory and the dominance of the female form. Evelyn de Morgan was a successful and prolific artist exhibiting a range of her works from 1877 until her death in 1919.
