The End of The Song (1902). Edmund Leighton (English, 1853–1922). Oil on canvas.
A young woman, evidently a princess, listens to amorous overtures from a good-looking and equally youthful harpist; he has no doubt just been singing a song on the same theme, while she has been busy with her embroidery. Up the steps on the right walks a crowned figure, presumably a king and the girl’s father. He strokes his beard quizzically as he contemplates the young couple, who, wrapped in their own thoughts, are unaware of his approach.
