The Invader

0 0 5 Scritto da: Margaret L. Woods
As it is common and necessary in the academic world, students study art and its history, perceiving many, many works over their academic career. However, it is rare that a piece art can be traced back to a student through personal history. Yet, Professor Fletcher’s pupils get this chance as they study a portrait of a woman named Lady Hammerton. First starting with the story of his grandfather’s scandalous marriage to a woman twenty-four years younger than him, Professor Fletcher leads the discussion on the intriguing story behind the portrait, and the colorful personality and accomplishments of the lady immortalized on the canvas. While the students hear of stories both heart-breaking, inspirational, and shocking, they become even more invested when they realize the uncanny resemblance a fellow student, Milly, shares with the woman in the painting. As they learn of their blood connection, the students keep these stories in mind as they continue their studies with a greater perspective.
