  1. Hello. I’ve just read this on your webpage: “In 1857, Rossetti and a small group of artists that included William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones were working in Oxford, painting the Union Murals. One night, they attended a show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.” But the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane is in London, not Oxford. It was the Theatre Royal’s company that was touring the country and in Oxford. In any case, Jane Burden would not have had the money to travel to London to go to the theatre.

    • You are absolutely right. I just checked Jan Marsh’s book, Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood, and she says “One evening in the last week of September or the first week of October, Jane and her sister Bessie, aged eighteen and fifteen respectively, went to see a show presented by the touring company of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, then playing a summer season in a converted gymnasium in Oxford.” Thanks for bringing this to my attention as I certainly might not have caught my mistake! Do you happen to know which post on my site you saw it on so that I can correct it?
