Here's another gem to be auctioned in Bonhams New Bond Street sale of 19th Century European, Victorian and British Impressionist Art on 21 January. Dante Gabriel Rossetti drew this intimate pen-and-ink sketch of his muse Jane Morris reading a book in 1873. Lost for 150 years, it turned up in a private collection in America. Its estimated value is £20,000 to £30,000. CLICK to view the full sketch.
