Picture: Dr Matt Loder

The great Dr Matt Loder, art historian at the University of Essex and a master of all things tattoo, would like to know if any AHNers recognise the composition on the above tattoo. I'm afraid I'm stumped, but I guess it must be some European painting or illustration of the late 19th Century. Matt tells us that the design was available to be tattooed in London before 1900, and that the tattooist is also known to have copied designs by Faleros and Bougereau. All thoughts gratefully received...
