Awake Her Not

Here we have a painting circa 1910 by Emma Florence Harrison.

Ms. Harrison illustrated many of Christina Rossetti's poems, so this work is presumably an illustration for Rossetti's Dream Land.

Dream Land
By Emma Florence Harrison

The opening to Dream Land by Christina Rossetti:

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
