When Colonel Charles Lindsay noticed what a talented artist his five-year-old daughter was, he asked the Pre-Raphaelite Edward Burne-Jones to teach the little girl art. Burne-Jones replied ‘Do not give her lessons. Let her make studies of herself before a looking glass. She will never find a more sedate model to sit for her.’ It was on this advice that Marion Margaret Violet Lindsay, later Violet Manners (1856–1937), Marchioness of Granby and Duchess of Rutland, began her artistic career.
