“Princess and Companions on a Moonlit Terrace”

I found this card  in a bookstore in Chestertown VT which is a reproduction of a c.1790  painting from an unknown artist.  I bought it just before I made “Pieces of Myself”  and didn’t realize until finding the card this morning how much of an influence it had on the quilt.

I love the reflecting pool above the princess, which isn’t about symmetry like the rest of the painting, but about balance.
