Gates of Dawn

Speaking of exquisite women, this painting is probably the most well-known of Herbert Draper's, Gates of Dawn, and I would be horribly remiss to not include it in our Draper collection. Directly below is a detail from the painting, and below that—allegory in all it's glory.

I think it looks a bit like James Gurney could have painted this, testament to just how great Gurney is.

One of my favourite paintings. I'm hoping to see the original in a few weeks, the mural is in Draper's Hall in London which is not usually open to the public, but will be open as part of the London Open House event in September.

That should be fantastic. I'm quite envious.
