A Victorian Illustration

This is from an 1892 American edition of Thomas Hardy's famed novel, "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," a tragedy of the mid-Victorian era. Here we have our heroine's dignity undermined by the low behavior of someone not trustworthy to her. Her appalled expression says it all. I could see parts of this used in a new way, for collage purposes.
Happy Creating!
