Cultured Wednesday: Leighton’s Farewell

There is another one of Edmund Blair Leighton’s paintings that I particularly like.  It, too, is from the times of Noble Knights and Fair Ladies as E.B.L. loved medieval scenes, but this one is different from, say, The Accolade or The Shadow:  It features a family rather than a knight and lady.

Can you spot the husband and father waving?  And can you even imagine what it must have been like back in the day, when communication and transportation were so much slower?
