Little Girl Lost

Ophelia, c. 1851-53 by Arthur Hughes, Manchester City Art Galleries.

Hughes was influenced by Pre-Raphaelite Group after reading their publication The Germ. His painting of Ophelia from Shakespeare's Hamlet represents a much younger woman then most other artists, even as Hughes himself would later portray her.

I apologize for the horrible image, here is a great view.
