Description

British print in the Art Nouveau style. Two women stand in a garden, with the woman on the left shown as incredibly tall and elegant, wearing a patterned cape that trails across the entirety of the foreground. The second woman, much smaller in scale and proportionate with the rest of the scene, stands in a Grecian-inspired dress with her back to the viewer reading a book. A sundial stands in the middle of the garden surrounded by wildflowers; a garden wall and stark white trees stand in the background.

Provenance

From "Le Morte d' Arthur" by Sir Thomas Malory, written in the 15th century
