Pre-Raphaelite Project

During the summer of 2008, Maud Taber-Thomas had a research fellowship from Bowdoin College to study the philosophy and painting techniques of the Pre-Raphaelites. The project inspired her to do a series of paintings that explore Pre-Raphaelite ideas.

Orlando II: “Eyes like drenched Violets”

11″ x 14″

Oil on Panel

2010

“Directly we glance at Orlando standing by the window, we must admit that he had eyes like drenched violets, so large that the water seemed to have brimmed in them and widened them; and a brow like the swelling of a marble dome pressed between the two blank medallions which were his temples. Directly we glance at eyes and forehead, thus do we rhapsodize.”

Orlando, Virginia Woolf

Pied Piper

11″ x 14″

Oil on Panel

2010

“Come in!” — the Mayor cried, looking bigger
And in did come the strangest figure!
His queer long coat from heel to head
Was half of yellow and half of red,
And he himself was tall and thin,
With sharp blue eyes, each like a pin,
And light loose hair, yet swarthy skin
No tuft on cheek nor beard on chin,
But lips where smile went out and in;
There was no guessing his kith and kin:
And nobody could enough admire
The tall man and his quaint attire.
Quoth one: “It’s as my great-grandsire,
“Starting up at the Trump of Doom’s tone,
“Had walked this way from his painted tombstone!”

-“The Pied Piper of Hamelin,” Robert Browning

This winter-eve is warm,
Humid the air! leafless, yet soft as spring,
The tender purple spray on copse and briers!
And that sweet city with her dreaming spires,
She needs not June for beauty’s heightening

A damsel with a dulcimer

And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
