Love’s Messenger by Marie Spartali Stillman is one of my all-time favorites. I love this work, and the artist. The detail is incredible, and the theme is so wonderful. It is absolutely beautiful, and we are so happy that the Museum has this in the collection. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share our favorites.
