A Fine Allegorical Victorian oil on board


Stock No.14811

An enchanting, romantic 'Tangled by Roses', oil on board Victorian painting of a maiden wandering in a garden in the manner of John Everett Millais. It bears the monogram J.E.M. and the date 1869 to the bottom right hand corner. English, circa 1860.

Notes: The handling of the foliage and flowers is extremely fine, with an enormous amount of detail. The image is infused with symbolism, the purity of the girl's white dress and the roses which symbolise love are studded with thorns, to warn of the dangers of love. Ivy is a symbol of eternity and fidelity.
