sketch books were filled with subjects such as naked children in meadows, wistful Pandoras, and angels, all more or less crudely coloured, but with much primitive charm in them. Her latent abilities were soon recognised and encouraged, and by degrees the character of her work changed. One stage after another was passed through, and work was constantly enjoyed. In The Rape of the Sabine Women (PI. 50 of this book), still hanging in the Slade School, is to be found one of the last productions of her studentship, which extended over five years, towards the close of which she obtained a scholarship ; circumstances,however, led her to renounce it soon after it was won. Since then her work has continued at its own pace, and sketches have accumulated more or less unobserved. Though essentially an artist, drawing and painting have taken their placew ith such occupations as digging and planting without apparent preference, and it is clear that her art has not lost by its rougher companionship.
