Mariana by John Everett Millais, Private Collection.

Mariana is the main character in a poem by Tennyson that deals with a woman "trapped" in her life. She is surrounded in a perfect Victorian setting by the dictates of the Arts & Crafts movement. The movement was a reaction to the increased industrialization of the world and sought to emulate a time when everything was created by hand.

What a beautiful piece! Her posture says a million times the pressure and stress of being as you say "trapped"...
