Description
"SIR GALAHAD AND 'THE PALE NUN'" JULIA MARGARET CAMERON. 13 1/8 x 10 5/8- inch on the original album page with gold border around the print, 1875. The title is written in pen beneath the image, in the same hand as in other prints. This lacks the line that usually appears above the title. "The Pale Nun" is in quotations marks.

This is one of the 24 prints Cameron selected from 245 photographs she made of the subject for an edition of Tennyson's "Idylls of the King". The glances do not meet; this must have been intentional in terms of the poem, as Cameron was very close to Tennyson who approved of the photograph. Cameron's personal servant Ann Holland appears as the lovely nun.
Condition
This is just short of rich, as is the print in the Metropolitan Museum. There is light fading at the very edge. The print in the Victoria Albert Museum is much more heavily edge faded (these are based on the images on the museums’ websites.[3+]
