Description

Allegorical portrait of Mary Ann Hillier with child by Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879). Cameron's photographic portraits are considered among the finest in the early history of photography. She set up a private studio at her Isle of Wight home at the age of 48, after her daughter gave her a camera, and she became expert at using the collodion wet- plate proces. She used friends, servants and neighbours as subjects, including the scientists John Herschel and Charles Darwin. Hillier, a housemaid, was one of Cameron's favourite models.
