Five unhappy Victorian paintings


A Widow's Mite, by John Everett Millais, 1870.
The Governess, by Alexandre Cabanel, circa 1865-70.
For the Last Time, by Emily Mary Osborn, circa 1864.
A Wounded Danish Soldier, by Elisabeth Jerichau Baumann, 1865.
The Sister's Grave, by Thomas Brooks, 1857. 

The Victorians just celebrated sadness.
