This is not an ordinary painting in a frame. It is on a piece of furniture, an elaborate craftsman-made screen. It was commissioned in 1895 by Alice Radcliffe, a wealthy art lover based in London. When she died her collection was inherited by Alice Dorothea Henderson, a Bath resident. Alice Dorothea Henderson left the screen to the Victoria Art Gallery in 1954, in one of the most important bequests ever made to Bath. Alongside St Dorothea, the screen depicts St Elizabeth of Hungary, a rose tree and an apple tree.

George Frampton was a leading figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement and a member of the Art Workers’ Guild.
