'“Guinevere in her Golden Days” by Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale. Ms. Brickdale illustrated a version of Tennyson’s Idylls of a King. These include many different stages of Guinevere’s life, from innocent maiden, to radiant young queen, to guilt-ridden lover, to penitent nun. This one... depict(s) Guinevere shortly after becoming queen, but before her affair with Lancelot. The peace, leisure, and sumptuousness of being queen are well portrayed, as well as her natural beauty and grace.'
