Ellen Terry (1847-1928) was a friend of Robert Browning and Alfred Tennyson, (who were both admired by William Morris) and she moved in the same social circles as the PreRaphaelite painters.  Terry was photographed by Julia Margaret Cameron, (the PreRaphaelite photographer) and painted by GF Watts and John Singer Sargeant.  Terry was an influential figure in artistic circles and was widely admired by the PreRaphaelite and Aesthetic movement painters and highly regarded by George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde.
