Here is another Pre-Raphaelite gem from Bella's collection: "The Soul of the Rose", where one of her ancestors (she comes from a lineage of famous models, it seems) is portrayed with a silk caftan and beautiful ruby earrings inhaling the soft perfume of wild roses. This oil was painted by the famous John William Doghouse, in 1903.
(After the real John William Waterhouse, "The Soul of the Rose", dated 1903. I also used some Tiffany's stained glass for the frame).
