To love a painting is to feel that this presence is… not an object but a voice.

~ Andre Malraux ~


The Field Hospital


Eastman Johnson

Created in 1867, the painting captures a woman, a volunteer of The Sanitary Commission, comforting a Union soldier, by helping him to write a letter.   The idea of convalescing  outdoors is intriguing; all appears so quiet and peaceful, though one cannot help but wonder what might lie beyond the wild flowers.


Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.

~ William Blake ~
