A Pre-Raphaelite artist, De Morgan was known chiefly for her allegorical paintings. "The Daughters of the Mist" depicts personifications of the mist amid cloudlets in a mountain gorge at dawn. While this preliminary study is of portions of the female form undraped, the finished painting shows several maidens swathed in diaphanous, swirling drapery.Primary Object ClassificationDrawingCollection AreaWesternRights
