"TWELFTH NIGHT ACT II, SCENE IV" by Walter Deverell (1827-1854). According to Franny Moyle Elizabeth Siddal was the model for Viola, dressed in boys' clothing as the page on the left;  Deverell was the model for the figure of Orsino in the center; and Dante Gabriel Rosetti was the model for the jester.  Siddal's exposed legs were considered shocking at the time, even though her character in the painting was dressed as a boy.
