This sketch is for an illustration that was engraved in the Moxon edition of Tennyson's poems (1857, p. 274). Following his marriage, Effie and Millais lived at Annat Lodge, near Bowerswell (the Grays' family home) in Perthshire between August 1855 and May 1857. It proved a particularly productive time for Millais, when he worked on 'Autumn Leaves' and 'Apple Blossoms' (Spring), as well as on his illsutrations for Moxon.

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1906.
