1147) Lily Pettigrew

Lilian Pettigrew (also known as Lily Pettigrew, 1870 - 1920). Together with her sisters Rose and Hetty, she modeled for painters such as John William Godward, James McNeill Whistler, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Theodore Roussel and others.

- "In her memoirs, Rose described her sister Lily as having 'most beautiful curly red hair, violet eyes, a beautiful mouth, classic nose, and beautifully shaped face, long neck, well set, and a most exquisite figure; in fact she was perfection!'"  https://www.whistler.arts.gla.ac.uk/corresponden…/people/…/…
