1899 Print Love Wastes Time Schoolgirl Classroom Angel ORIGINAL HISTORIC INS2


This is an original 1899 halftone print of Love that Wastes our Little Schoolgirl's Time by Byam Shaw. This is a beautiful image of a school girl getting distracted by 'love'. This is a very creative way of representing love in this child's mind. Love here is an angel dressed in a lavish dress, with arrows behind her. She has a big, coy smile and is building a pyramid with hearts cards in front of this young girl. Shaw does a great job of showing what schoolgirls really think about.
