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