Lecture | How Pre-Raphaelite Frames Influenced Degas and the Impressionists | NGV International

Ford Madox BROWN The finding of Don Juan by Haidée (1869-1870) {retouched (1871) and later}  watercolour and gouache over pencil 47.5 x 57.6 cm (sheet) Bennett A91 National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Felton Bequest, 1905 210-2
