Pauline Jermyn may have been penniless when she married and became Lady Trevelyn but she was by no means uneducated. Her salon was the fostering environment for many leading artists of her day. She was both friend and benefactor for all of the Pre-raphealite Brotherhood, a close friend of John Ruskin, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Thomas Woolner. This book draws from her personal diaries which had never before been published. A delightful look into the Victorian private life of a patron of the arts.
