Rosetta was the second wife of George Frederick Harris. They were the grandparents of Rolf Harris. The work was originally a larger portrait but was cut down by Rolf’s father, losing the signature and the date. Rosetta was originally the nanny to George's children before the couple eloped. This work dates from shortly after the death of her second son, Carl Harris (Rolf's uncle), in the First World War.
