This fine art print features a woman wearing a wonderfully layered headpiece created around a beautiful magenta flower. The flower is in fact a Pansy. Apparently, the name Pansy is derived from the mid-fifteenth century French word penser, which means 'to think'. And the Lady with the Magenta Flower in this print does appear to be thinking beautiful thoughts - just look at the dreamy expression on her face.
'Lady with the Magenta Flower' is one of a stunning collection of portraits featuring lovely and interesting women, created by artist Jayne Leighton Herd exclusively for Claude & Leighton.
At first glance the women in these portraits may simply seem enigmatic, due to their elaborate headpieces partially covering their faces. Yet the beautifully layered collages of flowers, feathers, textures, patterns, sometimes with birds and animals, are an expression of the complexity and multifaceted aspects of women.
These gorgeous portraits express femininity, emotion, and imagination. Intuition, reflection and creativity.
This fine art print, from a watercolour mixed media painting, is printed on heavyweight 310gsm, 100% cotton rag paper with a textured finish.
