A handsome prince, dressed in black and buried in his depression under a tree. The party goes on inside, and the brave young man faces life without his first love. A section of Geoffrey Chaucer's 14th century classic, Book of the Duchess, approaching the prince in calligraphy through a gothic window.

This is easily one of my favorite Chaucer pieces, and one that tends to get overshadowed by Canterbury Tales. The muted colors of the stonework reflect the mood and the age of poem's setting. The calligraphy itself is done in walnut ink in the original Middle English.

Painted, hand-penned, dated and signed by Jocelyn Boblink with lightfast watercolor paint on heavy off-white watercolor paper, it measures 14x20", ready for the matting and frame of your choice. We'll ship it rolled in a tube for best protection.

Different variations of my excerpts from Chaucer and other poems have been gifted to schools, retiring English department teachers, tough tenured professors, etc. Also, appropriate for gothic architecture fans and medieval poetry junkies.
