I stumbled upon this portrait by Giovanni Boldini purely by chance while looking for stuff on Google images. I only saw the miniature at first and mistook the right end of the coat/dress for a foamy wave, and thought it was a stormy beach scene. Made me think of Ariel immediately ! I clicked on the pic and realized it was completely different though. But… why not ? :) Loved the flow of the pose and Edwardian feel. Just added the iconic wave !
Ariel looks very wistful here. Maybe Eric turned out to be a douche after all (or does he have smelly feet ?) and now she longs to go back to the sea. Don’t give up everything to follow a pretty boy you just met, I guess :D No worries, daddy got yo back.
