Women and Roses, 1900s-1910s

Emma Barton (Mrs. G.A. Barton) :: The Gardener’s Daughter, before or on 1911. (DETAIL)

Far up the porch there grew an Eastern rose,
Gown’d in pure white, that fitted to the shape,
Holding the bush, to fix it back, she stood,
A single steam of all her soft brown hair
Poured on one side. (Tennyson)
