1. [February 1868/1869?]
Dated from address. JW worked at the studio of Frederick Jameson in Great Russell Street for several months in 1868-1869.
She may have modelled for the central or right hand woman in The Three Girls (YMSM 88); the woman on the left is Tillie Gilchrist. Symphony in White, No. 3 (YMSM 61) was being touched up in 1867. The models were, as far as is known, Joanna Hiffernan (b. ca 1843), JW's model and mistress [more], and Augusta's sister, Emelie ('Milly') Eyre Jones (b. ca 1851), model, later wife of F. H. Robson [more].
