Thanks to the passing summer breeze,
With her own fragrance blend.."

  1. The Waterhouse paintings are well known and much loved. Ditto, I think, the Godward. But Frazier's lady seems to have a horrible spinal condition.

    Where can the Godward be found?

  2. Hels- i think you will find in the Frazier painting, if you look closely, that the woman is wearing a cape. notice the difference in colors between the dress and overlay that has seemingly fallen off the left shoulder. it is beautifully done and a wonderful addition to the collection for Mondays theme.

  3. Creio que nunca aqui deixei nenhum comentário, mas deixo hoje.
    Linda a pintura.
    Gosto muito de pintura, mas sei pouco. Sou apenas uma curiosa, amadora. Tenho descoberto aqui muita pintura que desconhecia.
    Obrigada
    Um bom fim-de-semana

  4. I do feel sorry for the tiger that's been run over in the last painting.
