Today I will share 'He Loves Me; He Loves Me Not ...' by French painter Marie Cornelissen. I enjoy this work for its simple yet effective narrative. We see young woman plucking peddles off a flower while another figure, presumably the source of her woe, is visable behind the tree. Though his identity a mystery to the us, we can clearly see the young woman's face as she pines for her companion.
Surely his love isn't worth this sad display, is it?
All judgments aside, I love the straight forward display of emotion in this quiet, thoughtful piece. It also provides a peaceful woodland scene, perfect for inward contemplation regarding matters of the heart.
