You might want to look up the legend of Elaine, a.k.a. the Lady of Shallott, who died of unrequited love for Sir Lancelot. The story has been the subject of several famous paintings.

Maybe this painting called "alone and forsaken", very popular in the late 19th century and done by Heinrich Vosberg in the year 1889, in spite of the discussions around the name of the author you can find on the web.

There's not a week that doesn't pass that I don't receive a Comment to my blog or a separate email about this painting. You'll find much information at my blog site. "Alone Painting" Part V lists all the people who claim to have one. so far, it appears Vosberg is the original artist.

check out

And then also click on the Comments.

As of this writing, ebay has another one up for auction.

Default alone

This is crazy I also have a painting and print of the girl in the boat, the painting appears to be oil on canvas with no frame or signature, it looks quite old but is done very well. It looks like it might have had a frame on it because some of the paint is chipped where there may have been rubbing. How can there be so many and which one is the original???
