Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale - The Pale Complexion of True Love,

The title is taken from Shakespeare's AS You Like It, Act III, when Corin speaks of Silvius' unrequired love for Phebe as a "pageant play'd Between the pale complexion of true love And the red glow of scorn and proud disdain."

If you're still wondering, it's just now in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris (France)
