This is absolutely my favourite piece in the museum and is a beautiful pre-Raphaelite painting. The emotions are so wonderfully detailed on each characters face. I always start each trip to the museum by re-visiting this painting.

what a beautiful piece! i felt really touched when i saw it and hope that i\'ll be back in Wales soon to watch it again. a rather perfect structural harmony between characters, colors and ligth. so nice!

I have actually seen this piece in Cardiff, and it is an amazing example of pre-Raphaelite art which tells a very intricate story with several different moods and classes of people within one painting. I just hope I go back soon enough to see it again, because I think that overall, this is my favourite painting
