Windflowers 1902
I want to paint grass like this.
Windflowers may just be a sort of anthropomorphic nature painting like his Boreas or Leighton’s Flaming June, or she might be Persephone out gathering anemones before Hades gallops up in his chariot and carries her off the to his gloomy underworld.

Pyche Opening the Door into Cupid’s Garden 1903

Echo and Narcissus 1903
Compare this landscape to the backdrop of the Lady of Shalott in her boat. It would be a beautiful place, if only it were real, but somehow, I just don’t think it’s real, no matter how many paintings it shows up in.
