Footnotes

  • The present lot was inspired by a watercolour of the same title by Dante Gabriel Rossetti in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. It explores the theme of two medieval lovers who meet their doppelgängers in a dark wood. Sargent uses exactly the same composition as the heavily worked and pigment saturated watercolour, which was so typical of Rossetti's technique in the early 1860s.
