The date when this was painted is unknown – anytime from 1899 (the date Millicent Fawcett became an honorary doctor of law) to c. 1920.
A ‘Portrait of Dame Millicent Fawcett, in academical gown’ is also mentioned in the posthumous studio sale of 1934. This appears to be a different, lost version, with the Tate work acquired in 1930 and the stated sizes being different.
