Knights of the Round Table: Queen Guinivere and Her Sir Lancelot

Here are those star-crossed lovers of King Arthur's Court. Neither of these two people is wearing a smile. I suppose they just wished to be partnered and have Arthur out of the way, and yet both cared how it would look. Shame is a feature to many stories surrounding infidelity. Put two hapless people in the same room, let the stars zap them, and misery might be your end result.
All the same, we think they are truly beautifully done, sad expressions and all. Look at her gown, for example, and his armor. One more reason why I like the illustrative art of the late 1800's.
Happy Creativity from everybody here at our studio!
