Ladies in blue

I said to myself, 'I want to go to Crete to see the original, this thing hanging at the New York Met is only a copy. Upon closer examination, I realized that only a few fragments actually exists, the rest is just an artist's imagination of what he thinks it might have looked like in its original state. From what he had seen of other frescoes in Greece, he thinks the few fragments might have looked like this. Very clever. The artist was Emile Gilleron and the year for this work, 1927.
