Katey Dickens was the equivalent of a nineteenth-century Girl: the daughter of the most famous man in Britain, a beautiful artists’ model, a celebrated artist and friends with London’s artistic and literary elite.

Charles and Catherine Dickens had ten children (of whom, one died when still a baby). During their privileged upbringing, Katey and her siblings were taken on regular trips abroad, to France, Switzerland and Italy, and acted in elaborate family theatricals’ in 1857 they performed on a public stage for Queen Victoria. Katey’s talent for drawing was noticed early and, at the age of twelve, she was enrolled in art classes at Bedford College, the first college in Britain to provide university education for women.
