Silas Marner Finding the Body of Godfrey Cass's Wife

Oliver Madox Brown 20/01/1855 - 5/11/1874

Summary

A man, with a child under his arm, leans forward and holds a lantern over a woman lying dead on the snow, on the left. The woman lies back on a small bank, beneath a bush, a set of small footprints run from her side away from the scene. In the background, light shines out of the open doorway and window of a small house.
