Helen is the capricious maid in this lavoir scene from French Provence.
Caprice is usually accepted as an action or attitude taken at whim
without apparent motive, but the Oxford English Dictionary
relates the source of the word to capra the goat -
hardly a flattering comparison for these young ladies.
The beautiful warm climate of Provence with mountains in the background is an ideal location for Sir William's paintings.
In the heart of the French countryside, near the beautiful towns of Brantome and St. Jean du Cole lies La Chabroulie, Click is a beautiful holiday house to let in Dordogne France.
The signed prints and paintings of L.S.Lowry
are increasing in value on a regular basis and his work has now become of greater value than many modern masters. View here.
