Notes:

Beata Beatrix . . . Tate Gallery
From a painting by Rossetti.

Because mine eyes can never have their fill
Of looking at my lady’s lovely face,         I will so fix my gaze
That I may become bless’d, beholding her.

(Dante Alighieri,
Translated by D. G. Rossetti
).

The woman in the picture has golden hair; in the background we see a sun-dial with its gnomon, and two figures; in the foreground, as she clasps her hand, a bird, perhaps a dove, delivers flowers to her heart.
