Gustav Klimt. Love, 1895.

Cruel? I think there never was a cheatingMore cruel, thro’ all the weary days than this!This is no dream, my heart kept on repeating,But sober certainty of waking bliss.
Dreams? O, I know their faces, goodly seeming,Vaporous, whirled on many-coloured wings;I have had dreams before, this is no dreaming,But daylight gladness that the daylight brings.
What ails my love; what ails her? She is paling;Faint grows her face, and slowly seems to fade!I cannot clasp her, stretch out unavailingMy arms across the silence and the shade.
~”In the Night.” By Amy Levy. c. 1880’s.

Poster by Paul Berthon designed for the Salon des Arts Libéraux, ca. 1900.
Description: A striking design of two women by a lithographic printing press. Like all Berthon’s posters, it was designed as a decorative lithograph in which the text played no real part, but was confined to reserves outside the subject.

One of my favorite things I ever came across at the MET museum. Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) is, arguably, one of the greatest portraitists in the history of photography. This photo is called The Parting of Guinivere and Lancelot, 1874.
