Found this gorgeous Tribute to Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale on YouTube. To fully appreciate it, watch it in full screen.
The music is from Fairydust, a CD by Trobar de Morte. Trobar de Morte is a medieval folk/fantasy music band from Barcelona.
I’ve posted about Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale in the past, here and here. She was born in 1871, which makes her a true Victorian, but she lived until 1945. Her longevity, combined with the style and subject matter of her paintings, are the reason she’s known as “The Last Pre-Raphaelite”.
I used a detail from her painting “The Deceitfulness of Riches” as the header on this blog for most of 2014. I’ve temporarily restored it in her honour.
