Monday Pretties - 10/10/11

And we are back to the pre-Raphaelite inspiration:

Hypatia by Julia Margaret Cameron c. 1868, courtesy of the V&A

Cameron photgraphed the artist Marie Spartali as the historical figure Hypatia. According to the book Pre-Raphaelite Women Artists, the gown Spartali is wearing in the photo was her own. Its interesting to wonder if Spartali wore this gown on a daily basis or kept it for her own paintings.
