It is so nice to have you back! And with such stunning images to boot! I play the harp and the images of the harp are especially attractive! I have an old book on English Ballads by George Wharton Edwards with similar illustrations. Simply divine! Anita
Hi AnitaI keep forgetting to look up Edwards' images, but will do so - they sound beautiful! Work has kept me busy and I lost track of time, thus the lull in posts. ~Lisa
these are all so beautiful.......thanks :-)
Gorgeous, Lisa! I just love stunning antique books, and I bet your collection would blow me away.I saved these images to my "just plain gorgeous" file :)
GraceDid you follow the link with the blurb about her?...stating that "Her work is clearly much inspired by that of Rossetti...". She seems to have a thing for red-heads too.
All beautiful, but the colors in that first one are sublime.
Jen, "For indeed", that is your color palette in the first image, little lady!Her line-art has a very Kelmscott Chaucer quality.
Oh! No I didn't. But I can definitely see the Rossetti influence...especially in pictures 3 and 4.
Ooooh, I love them all!
JnoMe too!! Other than Howard Pyle (and Crane and Goble and Rackham) she is my favorite illustrator.
Thank you so much, once again, for sharing such beautiful art. I particularly love the lady on the balcony!
Mary, I do believe that is my favorite one also!
wonderful, thank you for the introduction!
