Byron "She Walks in Beauty" Victorian Postcard
Postcard: "She Walks in Beauty" (Lord Byron), vintage art and historical poetry with a modern twist. A graceful lady gathers an armful of night blossoms in this lovely Victorian illustration of 1846 by Daniel Maclise and F.W. Topham. The original black-and-white engraving is long out of copyright and in the public domain, and I've remixed it with a modern twist by digitally hand-colouring it (the painting took about 8 hours). To complement the enchanting imagery, I've incorporated a quotation from the beautiful 1814 poem by George Gordon, Lord Byron: "She walks in beauty like the night..." This pretty postcard is perfect for the 21st-century lover of 19th-century art and poetry, on any occasion.
