Title:Terry, Ellen (1847-1928): Actress
Description:Terry, Ellen (1847-1928): Actress. Dame (Alice) Ellen Terry.  During an engagement at the Haymarket Theatre, Terry and her sister Kate had their portraits painted by the eminent artist George Frederick Watts, and he soon proposed marriage; Ellen was sixteen years old. Watts's famous portraits of Terry include "Choosing," in which Terry must select between earthly vanities, symbolized by showy, but scent-less camellias and nobler values symbolized by humble-looking, but fragrant violets.  Other famous portraits include "Ophelia."  Ellen and Watts married on 20 February, 1864, and separated after only ten months of marriage.  Source National Portrait Gallery, London: NPG 5048.
