Frederic Leighton was a representant of the Aesthetic Movement in British art, insisting upon beauty and form as the artist’s primary concerns.

May is aged about fifteen and depicted in the setting of the family’s country residence in Hampshire. The fallen tree suggests the passage of time and mortality, accentuating her fragile beauty. Google Art Project
