The hand painted artistry is done after George Frederic Watts' original oil painting titled. Which was painted in 1886. The painting depicts a female allegorical figure of Hope. Is traditionally identifiable through the attribute of an anchor, but Watts took a more original approach. In his painting, she is depicted sitting on a globe, blindfolded, clutching a wooden lyre with only one string left intact. She sits in a hunched position, with her head leaning towards the instrument, perhaps so she can hear the faint music she can make with the sole remaining string.
According to Watts, Hope need not mean expectancy. It suggests here rather the music which can come from the remaining chord. Hope inspired a scene from a 1922 film of the same name by Herbert Blaché and Lejaren à Hiller, featuring Mary Astor as Hope. It has been suggested as an influence on Picasso's early Blue Period paintings, especially the hunched musician in The Old Guitarist. Nelson Mandela reportedly had a print of the painting on the wall of his prison cell on Robben Island.
After Egypt was defeated by Israel during the Six-Day War the Egyptian government issued copies of it to its troops. The painting was the subject of a lecture by Dr Frederick G. Sampson in Richmond, Virginia, in the late 1980s, who described it as a study in contradictions. The lecture was attended by Jeremiah Wright and inspired him to give a sermon in 1990 on the subject of Hope - with her clothes in rags, her body scarred and bruised and bleeding, her harp all but destroyed and with only one string left, she had the audacity to make music and praise God...To take the one string you have left and to have the audacity to hope... That's the real word God will have us hear from this passage and from Watt's painting. Gorgeous tall vase with hard-to-find painting on floral encrusted all-over gold background.
