The stylized portraits of Julia Margaret Cameron were prepared with great care and have elements of both the more modern photographic realism of an unretouched close-up portrait, which contrasts strongly with the flowery Victorian era, and a more conventional religious and allegorical composition which points back to the Old Master painters. Today Cameron is rightly regarded as one of the finest portraitists in the history of photography.
