Study of a foot and ankle
This 'study of a foot and ankle' was done by Louisa Herschel when she was 18 or 19 years old. While its possible that she or one of her sisters posed for this, it is more likely that the feet would have been a plaster model owned by their drawing tutor. Plaster casts of statues and parts of statues would have been the standard tools of such a tutor.
