More about this portrait: Ellen Terry ('Choosing') by George Frederic Watts.
Oil on strawboard mounted on Gatorfoam, 1864.
This delicate yet sensuous portrait shows the seventeen-year-old Ellen Terry choosing between the camellias, which despite their luscious appearance have little scent, and the violets in her hand which are far humbler in appearance but smell sweeter. The choice, which is symbolic of that between worldly vanities and higher virtues, had a personal significance for the artist and the sitter.
