Fairy Queens

I have been thinking quite a bit about this painting, Take the Fair Face of Woman by Sophie Anderson. Some title it The Fairy Queen, though Anderson mostly painted portraits of women and children.

The full title is much longer: Take the Fair Face of Woman, and Gently Suspending, With Butterflies, Flowers, and Jewels Attending, Thus Your Fairy is Made of Most Beautiful Things.

(It’s currently held in a private collection – the photo comes from Wikimedia Commons collection.)

I call the painting, in my head… Fand.
