Francis Edmonds, “Devotion” (1857). Does anyone know the story, explanation, history, analysis of this? It’s one of my favorite paintings, but I want to make sure I understand it correctly and like it for the right reasons — Making Histolines

Hmmm. Somehow I doubt devotion was really what it was.

Paintings with so much excitement going on a person could become utterly exhausted and have to lie down. English. Samuel Colman, artist. Living from 1780 to 1845, he was based in Bristol for much of his career. Liked to paint Biblical scenes.

These are absolutely fascinating to me.
