A rare female self-portrait from the Beaverbrook Gallery

The London-based artist is Marie Spartali Stillman, and the painting is entitled "Girl with White Roses."

Stillman (1844-1927) was a Pre-Raphaelite and a friend and colleague of Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Morris.

The artist trained under Ford Madox Brown and exhibited at Dudley Gallery in Piccadilly, The Royal Academy in London and the Central Exhibition in Philadelphia.

Part of the Beaverbrook Masterworks, the painting can be seen at the Audain Art Museum until tomorrow.

The date Stillman created the work is unknown.
