Artist: De Morgan, Evelyn
Compositional study for ‘The Valley of Shadows’. See related drawing: D_EDM_0379, study of bending female figure, for ‘The Valley of Shadows’
Drawing of Jane Hales in a very elaborate frame inscribed in bottom right in black ink “Jane Hales: A study by Evelyn De Morgan” in Mrs Stirling’s hand.
Evelyn created pastel compositional studies for all her paintings and these can be considered works of art in their own right. They show her technical virtuosity extended not just to oil paints but other mediums too.
