The Promise

While perusing a volume of the art of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, whose depictions of Britons in classical settings ("Victorians in togas") enthralled 19th century England, I came across a painting that brought to mind the Tarot card The Lovers.

Entitled "Promise of Spring," it is part of the collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
