She Is Not

The Last of England, 1860
Ford Maddox Brown (1821-1893)
The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, UK

Two postcards received from Laura (the UK) last November. She is not, of course... But in both cases, when I saw them, I thought of Little Red Riding Hood, don't you?

Strangely enough, they exist two versions of The Last of England. This one, reproduced on the postcard above. And other one, exhibited in the Birmingham Museums Art and Gallery, with quite different colurs...

The Potato Digger, 1912-15
Paul Henry (1876-1958)
Collection Ulster Museum, Belfast, UK
