Aristocratic (see her richly ermined dress) girl of Greek descent (see her cap); she is coquettishly peeking from behind a window curtain. Behind it is a distant view of her castle - it is a typical example of early Victorian painting.
This charming watercolor by well-known British female artist Miss Eliza Sharpe was reproducted in 1835 through steel engraving (titled "The Maid from Athens" - see our image nr.7).

Miss Eliza Sharpe was born in 1796 in Birmingham. She was one of four daughters of William Sharpe, a Birmingham engraver, who brought them to London ca. 1816. She exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1817-1867 and was a member of the "Old Water-Colour Society", where she also exhibited between 1829-1872.
She began as a miniaturist but subsequently painted costume and sentimental subjects, some of which were engraved in the "Annuals". Towards the end of her life, she copied pictures and the Raphael cartoons at the South Kensington Museum.
She died in Burnham, Maidenhead on the 11th of June 1874.
