What Is It?
Today I saw an image on the front page of Wikimedia Commons, and it caught my attention; this image is the Picture Of The Day for May 12, 2017, and this image is of a painting called Miss Nightingale At Scutari (The Lady With The Lamp) (1854) (1891) by the painter Henrietta Rae.

I like some of the details of the clothing and how the candlelight 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.
