Painting illustrating Virginia Woolf's novel Orlando:


though it makes animals and vegetables bloom and fade with amazing punctuality,

has no such simple effect upon the mind of man.

The mind of man works with equal strangeness upon the body of time.

An hour,

once it lodges in the element of human spirit,

may be stretched to fifty or a hundred times its clock length ;

on the other hand, an hour may be accurately represented

on the timepiece of the mind by one second.

For Orlando ,

life seemed of prodigious length.

Yet even so, it went like a flash.

But when time stretched the longest,

moments swelled and he seemed

to wander alone in deserts of vast eternity.
