John Melhuish Strudwick - When Sorrow comes to Summerday Roses bloom in Vain

c. 1910
Strudwick was one of the most accomplished of Burne-Jones's followers. He painted some thirty paintings of legendary and symbolic subjects with a lapidary technique and a style that derives from the Italian quattrocento.
