Arthur Hughes - Amy

"... the young woman, Amy, appears to be waiting for her lover. As she adjusts her hair in preparation for meeting him, her eye rests on her name carved in the bark of the tree. ... Hughes used the shawl worn by Amy in his later painting 'April Love'." - Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
