The Ruined Girl, 1786

"The Ruined Girl (1786)", from The History of Love - "In this print of 1786, a young woman of some fashion appears to have received a letter from her beau, informing her that their dalliance is at an end. Knowing that she has surrendered her virtue to an undeserving suitor, she weeps and leans again the sofa for support. A half-draped portrait hanging on the wall, showing a conversing couple hidden from view, hints at their clandestine affair."
