Artist's Description

I’ve enriched and added touches of colored to this detailed drawing…
This artwork was originally for Alexander Pope’s mock-poem, “Rape of the Lock.” It depicts the scene in which Umbriel, a mischievous gnome, goes down to the Cave of Spleen to collect a sack of sighs and flask of tears.
Like most Art Nouveau pieces the scene is ornamental with flourishes, curls, complex clothing and an overall feeling of decadence.
