George Frederic Watts - "Love and Death" 1877


 'love is not restraining Death, for it could not do so. 
I wished to suggest the passionate through 
unavailing struggle to avert the inevitable.'
This painting was inspired by the death of a friend of Watts, 
who died of a wasting disease whilst still young.
