Description A photograph of pages from the literary work 'Lelia: The Life of George Sand' by Andre Maurois. A ring lay on the crease. The shadow forms the shape of a heart. A peach rose lay beside the ring. The book chronicles Sand's life and her romance with composer Frederic Chopin. The book is open to the chapter where Chopin expresses his love for Sand. Although the two were never wed, Chopin and Sand spent 10 years together. Chopin saw her has his lover and muse. Some believe his greatest works were created during their 10 year love affair. The image was shot 'through the viewfinder (TtV)' of a vintage camera. The photo is tinted slightly and digitally fused with textured layers, to give a worn, vintage, weathered, and rustic look. The image is available in a portrait or landscape layout. See my other images for companion pieces based on this book.A romantic print that is perfect for the one you love. Wonderful for celebrating a birthday, marriage, anniversary, wedding, Valentine's Day and more. See my other listings for a companion piece entitled 'A Whole Latte Love'.About the Artist:Kristen Stein is an award-winning Contemporary Artist living in Suburban Philadelphia.
