The Soul's Awakening

Artist: James Sant

James Sant was an English artist (1820-1916). It is a portrait of the artist's 13-year-old great niece, Annie Kathleen Rendle. In 1888, the painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. The sentimentality of the subject appealed to the Victorian public, and the painting was widely reproduced in engravings and prints.
