CARMEN SYLVA – REGINA ELISABETA OF ROMANIA

Carmen Sylva - Regina Elisabeta of Romania Gallery

Work is blessed and holy. Work is the road back again to Paradise Lost!
    Carmen Sylva, Queen of Roumania

It is odd, just when I was making that copy of the "Pieta" by Delacroix, I found where that canvas has gone. It belongs to a queen of Hungary, or of some other country thereabouts, who has written poems under the name of Carmen Sylva. The article mentioning her and the picture was by Pierre Loti, and he made you feel that this Carmen Sylva as a person was even more touching than what she wrote—and yet she wrote things like this: a childless woman is like a bell without a clapper—the sound of the bronze would perhaps be beautiful, but no one will ever hear it.
