Women in the Forest
I had an idea for a play a few years ago, a confluence of love and ancestors. I never (or better still, have not yet) wrote said play, but this 1920 painting by Marie Laurencin, is strikingly similar to what I had envisioned. There's a photo, too, of Jean Rhys that is the aesthetic, though not emotional, crucible of it all, but darned if I just can't find it anywhere.
