At the top left
of the photograph, we can see that the painting appeared in
the 1898 exhibition at the Royal Academy Winter Exhibition.
Beside this there is the original purchase stamp of the canvas
from Charles Roberson & Company. We can also see a darkened
label with the words: 'Farrer, H., Wardour Street, Soho "Ophelia",
By J. E. Millais, A. R. A. which indicates one of Ophelia's
original owners. There is a City of Birmingham Museum and
Art Gallery stamp (which perhaps relates to the 1947 loan);
a Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool label which relates to the
1967 exhibition which began in London at The Royal Academy,
the stamp for which can also be seen.
