Love is the Magic
Eleanor Vere Boyle
Chromolithographic print by Leighton Bros.
10½ x 8 inches
EVB [Eleanor Vere Boyle]. Beauty and the Beast, plate 10
The princess unites with the prince in this highly romantic image, the final plate in the book: 'Love is the magic that makes all things fair'. Boyle's design is closely linked to the idealized neo-medievalism of Dante Rossetti and the Pre-Raphaelites. First executed in watercolour, it is expertly turned into a chromolithograph by Leighton and Co.
