MY HIT LIST # 41 Flaming June

Lord Frederic Leighton, captured the tranquility of a lazy afternoon perfectly, or should that be a dreamy late morning. Whatever the time was and whoever the model in question was; Dorothy Dene, the actress or Music Hall star Mary Lloyd are both reckoned to be, this picture is a relaxing moment captured. No amount of familiarity takes away from it's quality.

The painting is paid tribute in a song by Paul Weller on his Stanley Road and it also illustrates the cover of the 1989 album "Waltz Darling" by Malcolm McLaren.
