LOVE’S BAUBLES
By BYAM SHAW (1872-1919)
 
BYAM SHAW
had a somewhat meteoric career as an illustrator of books,
a painter of allegorical pictures
and the founder of an art school.
 
Allegorical pictures seem to be much greater interest
to the art-loving public than to the artist.
Few of the latter follow this fascinating,
but exacting, branch of painting,
and among them Byam Shaw
holds a prominent place.
 
Love’s Baubles can scarcely be regarded
as a great work of art.
Its charm and meaning are all on the surface.
It does not engender deep reflection,
but it is deft and graceful,
full of movement and delicate charm.
 
The Appeal is almost exclusively to girls.
Boys generally describe this sort of picture as “silly”.
The dainty flowing dresses,
expressive faces and the charming actions of the hands
will be continual sources of inspiration
for many children’s imaginative composition.
 
“I stood where Love in brimming armfuls bore
Slight wanton flowers and foolish toys of fruit
And round him ladies thronged in warm pursuit,
Fingered and lipped and proffered the strange store.
And from one hand the petals and the core
Savoured of sleep; and cluster and curled shoot
Seemed from another hand like shame’s salute,
Gifts that I felt my cheek was blushing for.
 
At last Love bade my Lady give the same:
And as I looked, the dew was light thereon;
And as I took them, at her touch they shone
With inmost heave-hue of the heart of flame.
And then love said: “Lo! when the hand is hers
Follies of love are love’s true ministers.”
 
(Sonnet xxiii, “The House of Life” – D.G. ROSSETTI)
