This wonderful piece of art is called ‘Hamlet’, Act IV, Scene 5, Ophelia. It was created by Ferdinand Piloty II and can be viewed as a part of the Royal Shakespeare Company in the The National Inventory of Continental European Paintings.
I think that perhaps the author’s interpretation of Ophelia is more “Gaia-esque” or more “Mother Earthy.”She is holding flowers and even though my botany is not up to date, I think that she is holding some pansies and some rosemary.
The dark colors in the painting all seem to blend together to create a moss green. This is so dramatic to the point that the water is even the same shade of green as the plant life that surrounds it. Moreover, the contrast in Ophelia’s white robes and her dark surroundings emphasizes her figure as an angelic figure or goddess. This effect can most readily seen in this painting below. Think that Piloty was going for the same effect.
