Catalogue Note

When the Yeats' took up lodgings at 23 Fitzroy Road in London, Ford Madox Brown and his family were neighbours. Madox Brown's son Oliver fell in love with Mrs Yeats' sister, Isabella, who would often visit. However, the relationship never developed further as Oliver died young in 1874.
