Personal representation of the "Brontë Sisters" famous English authors of the 19th century. Charlotte, Anne and Emily, pastor's daughters raised in the wild austerity of the Yorkshire landscapes, wrote among the most beautiful novels in British literature in the 1830s and 40s...
The vegetable-tanned cowhide leather painting by Approximately 2.8mm thick, measures approximately 45cmX29cm. It represents the three women and the bonds of affection that unite them. They stand out from a trompe l'oeil parchment.
In the bottom corners, traditional acanthus-type leaves open onto a writing quill, symbolizing their reason for being. The painting is glued to a frame covered in cloudy gray calfskin like a stormy sky, and held in the corners by knotted leather laces. The pine frame is stained with walnut and satin varnish, enhanced in the corners with scrolls in silver metal. Total dimensions 59cmX39.5cm.
This representation has been the subject of research to stick as closely as possible to historical reality (physical resemblances, character traits depicted in period texts, contemporary paintings, etc.) but obviously remains pure fantasy on my part.
Technically, the whole thing required a good forty hours of meticulous work...
Quote from a poem (reversed) by Emily Brontë, engraved on the parchment, above the 3 sisters: "We part below to meet on high, where blissful ages never die. (but long or short though life may be, tis nothing to eternity.) . But whether life is long or short, it is nothing compared to eternity" UNIQUE and non-duplicable.
