Lord Tennyson

Lord Tennyson


Julia Margaret Cameron

English, 1815 - 1879

Cameron was good friends with Tennyson and his family and photographed them informally on several occassions. No personal relationship is evident in this formal portrait, which presents the writer as a dignified public figure.

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the urban Native peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
