Crossed, Off

Leighton-Off-1900

“Next to being married, a girl likes to be crossed in love a little now and then. It is something to think of, and gives her a sort of distinction among her companions.”

In keeping with the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’, here is another quote from that work, and in accompaniment is the painting ‘Off’ by Edmund Blair Leighton, a Pre-Raphaelite artist who delved into some feminine romantic Regency themes.
