World news – GB – pre-Raphaelite model, Fanny Eaton, is celebrated in creating an iconic google logo


. .

Jamaican-born daughter Matilda Foster – a former slave – and likely owner of a white farmhouse, was one of the most influential ideas of the pre-Raphaelite movement, and helped challenge the ideal of beauty standards in Victorian society.

Eaton, born in 1835, arrived in London from Jamaica with her mother as a child, shortly after slavery was abolished in the British colonies.

By 1851, she was recorded as living in London and working as a domestic servant.

During her twenties, she designed portraiture at the Royal Academy in London, and caught the attention of the pre-Raphaelian Muslim Brotherhood.

She first appeared in Simon Suleiman’s play « Umm Musa, » which was shown at the Royal Academy in 1960.

Over the next decade, Eaton designed and appeared in the work of artists including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, Rebecca Solomon, and Albert Moore.

Jephthah, a painting Millet made in 1867, is believed to be the last work she was involved in.

Eaton featured prominently in last year’s exhibition on The Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, at the National Portrait Gallery in London..
