He leads me astray – Art Twist 4

ArtTwist 4 is about the picture Susanna and the Elders, who you can read about here

I too am a model of virtue, of chastity, but have been led astray by this man:

He seduces me with hotels containing spa baths, blue bombs and wine (not to mention the sex).

Our limbs intertwined, our backs and bottoms pummelled by the jacuzzi jets. He leads me to the bed and at that point my recollections become somewhat hazy!

Two Harps

Two women travel together on a train, dressed in voluminous dresses of the day. So similarly dressed that they could be twins. Or best friends who just like to dress alike. One of the women is asleep, the other awake, reading. Outside the carriage the beautiful landscape of hills and river passes by, un noticed. That is what I see when I look at the painting The Travelling Companions by Augustus Egg.

Perhaps they are musicians on their way to a concert. Later tonight, they will sit side by side playing together. Just as they travel together and live together. Perhaps they are lovers, brought together by their enjoyment of travel, clothes and music. Who knows?
