Dickens's Little Dorrit, Vol. 12 of Charles Dickens Library Edition, Book the Second, "Poverty," Chapter 6, "Something Right Somewhere," facing p. 513.

Fin-de-siécle illustrator Harry Furniss's interpretation of the chapter in which Amy Dorrit has a disturbing experience with painter Henry Gowan and his model, Blandois. However, here Furniss focuses on the comedic (Fanny's putting Edward Sparkler in his place) rather than thew melodramatic.
