Evelyn De Morgan's model for Aurora in Aurora Triumphans, 1877-78, was Jane Hales, who was appointed nursemaid in 1866, to care for Evelyn's sister Wilhelmina (1865-1965). De Morgan's repeated images of Hales - often depicted nude - have encouraged some scholars to speculate on the nature of their relationship. De Morgan's married ceramist William De Morgan, but Hales was a much-loved member of the household and was buried next to Evelyn and William.
