Curatorial description (Accessed: 21 Sept 2017)
The model for "Cassiopeia" and "The Mountain Nymph, Sweet Liberty" was identified by Cameron only as “Mrs. Keene.” Although almost nothing is known about her, this photographic session appears to be one of just two instances in which Cameron used a professional model rather than friends, family, neighbors, and household staff.
