Great Britain - Art

June 21, 2016

This great and chatty card came from Britain to me.  The sender, Bart, wrote a good message on the back too.

He wrote, "Hello!  My name is Bart and I love travelling and visiting some castles, parks, gardens and stately homes.  In one of them that is : Blickling Hall in Norfolk, England there's a picture by V. Prinsep depicting a scene from book: Decameron by Boccaccio in which Lisa falls hard for King Peter of Sicily after seeing him at a jousting tournament and....I won't tell you what has happened because maybe you want to read it :-)  Greetings from England"

Blickling Hall, Norfolk
Lisa, a scene from Boccaccio's Decameron, by Valentine Prinsep, 1867
