Cultured Wednesday: Leighton’s The Shadow

Very moving.

“Remembering His Face” is another possibly title for this well-known painting by Edmund Blair Leighton, 19th and 20th century British painter.  His “The Accolade” we already featured, and here we have another painting from the times of Noble Knights and Fair Ladies.  And it is a rather moving one, not surprisingly.  Have a look at what the good lady is doing.

The Shadow (1909)
