"Marguerite" - 40x50cms

(Acrylics on canvas)

This painting is inspired by one of my favorite books, a french classic: La Dame aux Camelias, Alexandre Dumas Fils. I fell in love with the beautiful story of a young woman called Marguerite, and how she found her true love. Alexandre Dumas Fils tells the story in a beautiful, rich and sensual way that touched me deep down and inspired this painting.

"O what to me my mother’s care,
The house where I was safe and warm;
The shadowy blossom of my hair
Will hide us from the bitter storm.
O hiding hair and dewy eyes,
My breath is mixed into his breath.
I am no more with life and death,
My heart upon his warm heart lies."
Marguerite is available on Azaliart. Click here to know more.
