Artist's Description

“_*In Hardy’s The Return of the Native the heroine Eustacia Vye, a beautiful, nineteen-year-old “Queen of the Night,” has one desire: to be loved to madness by a man who is worthy of her and who will take her to exotic places…she is a sultry, sensuous beauty whose passionate, uncurbed nature is uncontrollable.
She desires to love a man worthy of her, a man and who will take her from the dreary, miserable world she knows living on the heath.
Eustacia feels that the heath will be her death: she feels as if she cannot survive in a place that cannot accept her and that she cannot accept*_"Spark..
