Category: 
Rejlander made several photographs with the intention of selling them to artists as studies for their paintings. He also sold these “art studies” to other collectors. Such was the case with this work, in which a young woman poses in medieval costume, possibly as the figure of Catherine Howard, fifth wife of King Henry VIII.
