Everyone has heard that saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words. So write a short story (7k-9k words) about this picture:



I absolutely love this painting. I first found it when it was on loan to the Museum of Fine Arts here in Houston. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me at that time. However, I saw it again when I went to the Met in NYC (and being a tourist) had a camera with me and got the shot.

Although this is a portrait, there is also a dramatic story told behind the subject being painted. So much fodder for a short story!

Happy Writing!
