Annie Miller portrait soon to be auctioned

anniemiller Via The Press Association:

A portrait previously owned by LS Lowry of an “enthralling” artists’ muse will go under the hammer next month.

The 1860 drawing of Annie Miller by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) is expected to fetch between £200,000 and £300,000. Annie Miller (1835-1925) was a striking model from a humble background, who “enthralled each artist for whom she sat”, auction house Christie’s said.

She was the subject of a permanent rift between two of the Pre-Raphaelite Brothers – William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) and Rossetti. The picture will go on sale in Christie’s sale of Victorian and British Impressionist Pictures including Drawings and Watercolours in London on June 4.

  1. A recent James Julia art auction featured a “pre raphaelite” oil on canvas, possibly Millais, that appears to be of Annie Miller in profile. Any thoughts?
