V&A Photos Gallery

Today the V&A Museum in London opened its new Photographs Gallery with an exhibition of photos by Victorian portraitist Julia Margaret Cameron (title link). Her photo of 1865 is entitled Whisper of the Muse. It shows her friend and advisor the artist George Frederick Watts posed as a musician with young Kate Keown as the muse whispering inspiration into his ear. It's an image from a more innocent age than ours. CLICK to see more of her photos in The Telegraph slide show.
