DA3141 14X20.5 A Huguenot On St Barts Day
Available at Appliances Connection.
A young Catholic girl unsuccessfully beseeches her Protestant Huguenot lover to save himself from the impending St. Bartholomew Day massacre by tying a white cloth around his arm to identify himself as a Catholic. Sir Millais was a prolific English painter and illustrator whose artistic talent won him a place at the Royal Academy schools at the unprecedented age of eleven. This work was inspired by the opera Les Huguenots by Meyerbeer. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones. Small: 14"Wx20½"H.
