Passages From The Poets – A Garden. more
The picture shows a gentleman and two ladies in probably eighteenth century dress, in the grounds of some large house or castle; they have met along a broad path leading to stone steps, and in the background are stone balustrades and a fountain. But the predominant feature of the picture, without question, is the cover of huge mature trees, the light shining through their branches and between their leaves to create a wholly light impression.
“Give me, O indulgent Fate,
Give me yet before I die,
A sweet, but absolute, retreat,
’Mongst paths so lost, and trees so high,
That the world may ne’er invade,
Through such windings and such shade
My unshaken liberty.” Countess of Winchelsea.
