Sappho, Alphonse Osbert, 1888

Alphonse Osbert (1857-1939) was a French Symbolist painter.

Sappho is in his signature style of “ghostlike Muses in mysterious landscapes bathed in the unearthly light of a sun or moon, rendered with abundant use of the colour blue.

From what I can find, his work seems to have fallen from grace in the current day. Pity.
