Photograph by Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) of Mrs Keene as Lady Clara Vere de Vere from Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem. 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 process. She used servants and neighbours as subjects, as well as famous figures of the time such as Tennyson and Thomas Carlyle, and the scientists John Herschel and Charles Darwin, many of whom were personal friends.
