‘…the curled and ample hair, the pure splendour of faultless cheek and neck, the leopard-skin and thyrsus, are all of the god, and godlike… but mournful wonderful lips and eyes are coloured with mortal blood and lighted with human vision… In these pictures [the oil and watercolour] some obscure suppressed tragedy of thought and passion and fate seems latent as the vital veins under a clear skin.’
Algernon Charles Swinburne, The Dark Blue, July 1871
