Cassandra by Frederick Sandys, 1863-1864.
The fisherman and the siren (Frederic Leighton)
Upon one summer’s morning
I carefully did stray
Down by the Walls of Wapping
Where I met a sailor gay.
My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold.

The Four Queens Find Lancelot Sleeping by Frank Cadogan Cowper, 1954.
1926. Four Queens find Sir Lancelot sleeping is taken from Mallorie’s Morte d’Arthur, in the same fashion as when Rossetti took similar subjects from the same work in the 1850’s. The model for the painting was William Jackson, grandson of George Howard, 9th Earl of Carlisle. The model for the Queen standing at the back with the fur wrap was Ann Armson.
