A single photogravure, from a leather bound portfolio of 91 photogravures of original paintings. The folio is signed by Edward Burne-Jones' son, Philip. It is one of an edition 200.

A contemporary response to the portrait states:"Wow, the portrait of Miss Dorothy Drew is most emphatically alive, almost alarmingly so! It has a queer kind of elfin charm, but makes one feel acutely what must be the responsibiities of the mother of this very latest thing in enfants terribles!" (Nursing Record & Hospital World, 1895, June 1st. p.389)

The original painting from which this photogravure was taken is in a Private Collection.

Purchased, 1900.
