Convent Thoughts, Charles Allston Collins, 1851, Oil on canvas. Arched top, 33 1/8 x 23 1/4 inches, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford
to renew, to redeem, and to regenerate
the mission of woman on Earth!.......
………………….born to nurse,
and to soothe, and to solace, to help and to heal
The sick world that leans on her. This was Lucile!

Richard Redgrave, RA. Ed. Susan P. Casteras and Ronald Parkinson. New Haven and London: Yale U P. 1988: “Here a stern patriarch evicts his daughter and her illegitimate baby into literal cold, for snow falls beyond the threshold. A brother buries his head to weep while various sisters cry and plead with their father, but to no avail. On the floor there lies what appears to be an incriminating letter, and on the wall hangs a didactic print which seemingly reinforce the drama, perhaps that of Abraham casting out Hagar and Ishamael, or Christ and the woman taken in adultery.
