© National Portrait Gallery, London

by Julia Margaret Cameron

Born in Calcutta, educated in England and Paris, she married Charles Hay Cameron, a lawyer, in Calcutta in 1838, and moved to England on his retirement. Cameron was given her first camera 1863 and had her first exhibition at Colnaghi's in 1865. Despite her success, in 1875 she left Britain for Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) where they had coffee plantations, remaining there until her death three years later. Cameron is best known for her portraits of great Victorians such as DarwinHerschelWatts and Tennyson and illustrations to the latter's Idylls of the King. Her unfinished autobiography Annals of my Glasshouse was written in 1874 and published in 1889.

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
