Betty Blythe as “The Queen of Sheba”
It’s so weird seeing those paintings in a different order but together back then when they were contemporary!
Not sure when this photo was taken, but I can see Syrinx in the background and that was painted in 1892.
Other paintings of note:
A Flood - Millais
Captive Andromache - Lord Leighton
The Shadow of Death - Holman Hunt
c. late 1800s: “Female Samurai”
“An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a female warrior. Members of the samurai class in feudal Japan, they were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honor in times of war.”

Haven’t seen this film, but just stumbled across this poster whilst trying to find something else on google images, ahh the joys of googling :)
If I were a man this is probably what I would look like. Look at those eyebrows! That’s the gradient my eyebrows are set to at default!
Aww a performing bear. Makes me think of Earrrrl the bear from The Hotel New Hampshire. Very good book!
