    The Three Graces [Edith, Eliza and Laura, daughters of Sarah and William Charles Wentworth], by Gruder, Hans Julius, 1824-1890.
    The Three Graces [Edith, Eliza and Laura, daughters of Sarah and William Charles Wentworth], by Gruder, Hans Julius, 1824-1890.
    Eliza, Laura and Edith Wentworth were three of the seven daughters of Sarah Morton Wentworth, nee Cox (1805-1880) colonial born, illegitimate and the daughter of convict parents Although her husband William Charles Wentworth (1790?-1872) was one of the most prominent men in colonial New South Wales his financial and political success was unable to protect his wife and daughters from social ostracism. This exclusion contributed significantly to their decision to take their younger children to England for their education. Sarah and the children sailed from Sydney in February 1853. Although Sarah and her youngest children, including Eliza, Laura and Edith returned to New South Wales in 1861 they left again for England in 1868.
    This portrait of the three daughters, depicted as young women with all the trappings of wealth and respectability, and represented in an allegorical fashion as the Three Graces, can be seen as a direct challenge to the prejudices of the colonial society which had made them social outcasts.
