Our own 19C Yearbook - No serious thinking required


John William Godward (English Classicist painter, 1861-1922) Far Away Thoughts, 1892

During the past month our grandchildren have their high school photos made for next spring's yearbook. These women seem like they are posing for a 19th-century school yearbook. They are not from a certain country or continent. Some wear hats, some do not. They are not particularly happy or morbidly sad. They are neither overtly seductive nor totally disinterested. They are not reading or sewing or arranging flowers or looking at goldfish or playing with birds or doing anything except appearing earnestly lovely.
