I chose this piece of artwork because of how serene it is. Personally, it reminds me of Auguste Rodin's The Kiss because of how they embrace, it has an overwhelming sense that they love each other. Another reason I chose this painting is because it reminds me of the Little Mermaid and how she saved the man she loved. But, this particular Howard Pyle painting is actually incomplete and the true meaning behind it is not known. This is painted on canvas with oil paint.
