St. Elizabeth by Ford Madox Brown.

Ford Madox Brown (16 April 1821 – 6 October 1893) was born in Calais to English parents and studied art at Antwerp. He joined William Morris' design company, Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co., in 1861. He worked with Morris producing book illustrations and stained glass.


Meeting Rossetti and William Holman Hunt in 1848, Brown adopted many of the traits of Pre-Raphaelite painting, and his own work became associated with theirs by both the critics and public. However, he was never actually a member of the brotherhood itself.
