The Blind Girl, John Everett Millais, 1856

This card shows a fusion of figure and landscape. In the foreground, two homeless girls sitting begging near a roadside. The blind girl has a sheet of paper hanging around her neck with the words ‘pity the blind’.  In the distance is a view of Winchelsea, a small village in East Sussex.

Millais said this was the social evil of the day, homelessness among children and the disabled.
