The Golden Train. Edmund Blair Leighton (English, Pre-Raphaelite, 1853-1922). Oil on panel. The correct title for this picture is “Lui sa ‘aime elle suit,” which translates as “After her love she follows.” It was probably inspired by the interior at 14 Priory Road, Bedford Park, the house and studio to which the artist moved in 1889, two years before he painted this picture. According to the artist’s granddaughter the house was replete with richly coloured panelling and Persian carpets.
Woman in blue reading. "Dans la Bibliotheque" (In the Library) painted in 1872 by Auguste Toumouche.
Maria Vermeer and a "selfie"? but she covers her pearl earring :) I LOVE this. Don't get me wrong. I treasure Dutch Painting. I think Johannes Vermeer would approve of this :) As would his daughter Maria Vermeer who may have painted 1/5th or more of his work, if my memory is correct :) I Love This! | Girl with a canon
