Impressions of TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
2) Ghost, Air, Nothingness
Media: Multicolour woodcut
Image Size: 6" x 8 1/2"
To quote from TTL: "Oh, Mrs. Ramsay! she called out silently, to that essence which sat by the boat, that abstract one made of her, that woman in grey, as if to abuse her for having gone, and then having gone, come back again. It seemed so safe thinking of her. Lily Briscoe.
Virginia Woolf, in the role of painter, Lily Briscoe. To the uninitiated, the animal in the foreground is a Goat, a family nickname.
I have just replaced the former photocopy with a better one and, in the process, have lost two comments. I regret because comments and replies do help to clarify the novel for those who are not familiar with Virginia Woolf's autobiographical approach.
