Today I saw the image above on the front page of Wikimedia Commons and it caught my attention, and this image is the Picture Of The Day for May 12, 2017.

This image is of a painting called Miss Nightingale At Scutari (The Lady With The Lamp) (1854) (1891) by the painter Henrietta Rae.

It is said to be a painting of Florence Nightingale at Scutari during the Crimean War.

I like some of the details of the clothing and how the candle light reflects on it, I like some of the colors, and I like the detail on one of her arms.

It is good to see some good quality images of works of art like this on Wikimedia Commons.

The end,
