Portrait of M Rose Herschel aged 7 (1851) by her sister Maria, aged 11
A small watercolour of Matilda Rose Herschel by her sister Sophia Maria Herschel. Drawing lessons formed an essential part of the education of any upper middle class Victorian girl, even those such as the Herschels whose parents valued and encouraged the pursuit of more academic subjects such as science and languages for their daughters. Maria Sophia, like her sisters was taught at home by her mother, her father, her older sisters (namely the second eldest, Isabella, or Bella to the family), a string of governesses and for certain subjects outside tutors.
