Great Regulars: No matter the pose--sitting, walking,

or leaning--the face is the same. Queen, saint, or angel--it is the same. The subject of each painting dwindles into insignificance besides the artist's obsession.

Feeding upon the woman's face, the artist is a kind of vampire. He devours his own muse.

from Christopher Nield: The Epoch Times: The Antidote--Classic Poetry for Modern Life: A Reading of 'In An Artist's Studio' by Christina Rossetti?
