Fanny Eaton

Fanny Eaton was the child of a formerly enslaved woman, originally from Jamaica. She moved to London and worked as a portrait model at the Royal Academy.

She was also a nurse and muse who featured in the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists. Dante Gabriel Rossetti, a well-known artist, praised Eaton’s beauty in a time when narrow beauty standards and racial prejudice ensured black women rarely had a prominent place in Western art.
