The Dove, Nathaniel Currier

D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Two women – one on left seated holding and looking down at dove; one on right in yellow dress and kneeling and looking up at dove.

Beautiful women, both real and idealized, were popular subjects during the 18th and 19th centuries. The women in this image were always shown wearing the most up-to-date fashion and hairstyles. The women were often portrayed in everyday activities, or shown with companions enjoying gossip.
