The Madness of Sir Tristram, 1862
Watercolor and bodycolor

I've summed up the story of Tristan and Isolde in past posts, but I can't find any information on the part of the story this painting depicts! It's such an interesting painting and I'd love to know the story, so if anyone knows what's going on, let me know! Anyway, give this painting a good look. I love how graceful the poses are.
