Gala Mitchell as Jane Morris

First post on the blog for the year -Happy New Year! A Photoshop study of a video screen freeze -Gala Mitchell in Ken Russell's docudrama about preraphaelite painter/poet Gabrielle Rosetti -Dante's Inferno. Gale played muse and ultimate William Morris wife -Jane Burden. In this scene she is posing for one of their Oxford Union hall murals as Queen Guinevere.

Gala Mitchell was a high fashion model at the time. Striking features!
