Pre-Pre-Raphaelite



The Last of England by Ford Madox Brown, Tate Collection

Brown was a huge influence on the Pre-Raphaelites. He is often grouped together with them even though he was considerably older than them and had been working for years. He received his training in Belgium and Paris.

That's a terrible reproduction. The original is nearly photo-realistic (especially, for some reason, in black and white).

The punchline (or Easter egg) is that her other hand is holding the hand of a baby inside her cloak.

I generally do post not so great reproductions so as not to upset the copyright holders - however, I provide links to better reproductions.

Copyright, I believe, becomes void fifty years after the creator's death. Unless your name is Walt Disney.

The owner of the work holds copyright to reproductions of the art - so the claim would not be from the artist, it would be from the owner.
