Curatorial description (Accessed: 29 November 2018)
Elizabeth Rigby was a journalist and art critic, writing for journals such as The Quarterly Review. As one of the earliest enthusiasts for photography, she posed for Hill and Adamson more than twenty times. In a review of their work in 1846, she referred to it as 'the beautiful and wonderful Calotype drawings...as the triumphant proof of all to be most revered as truth in art'.
