J. H. Lynch – Woodland Goddess

on

What kind of woman comes to be described as a goddess? Clearly not someone who walks amongst us mere mortals. J.H. Lynch captured the goddess-like features in many of his prints, and aptly named this picture ‘Woodland Goddess’:

Despite her luscious looks, I cannot begin to tell you how difficult it was to take a photograph of this… and not because I kept swooning at her loveliness. The flash! Turn it off, you can’t see the picture; leave it on, you get a massive glare. I have done my best.

She was a gift from Aidan’s dad at the weekend. He brought it over Sunday night and we were extremely pleased. It’s one of the biggest prints we own now; not entirely where she’s going to fit yet! We still have the giant ‘Chinese Girl’ print (a.k.a ‘The Blue Lady) by Tretchikoff to hang as well. Perhaps we should wait until we’re in a much bigger house to put them up.

This print was also used as the cover art for the book ‘Fantasia’ by Alfred Birney (Information from jhlynch.org).

It is notoriously difficult to find information on J.H. Lynch but a good place to start is the website jhlynch.org. If you have any queries about work by, or even possibly by, Lynch, there’s a useful gallery and forum on there.

We’ve only got two more in the Tina/Lisa series to obtain now. We’ll have to do A Clockwork Orange style and display them all together… oh hang on, already there with a trio up in the living room:

    What a beauty! We’ve got two Tinas and Autumn Leaves, our male visitors love them. I’d love to find the Woodland Nymph.
