'History of Costume' by Payne (old edition) and page 239 (new edition)
you can find Two Lovers. Swabian School, c. 1470
First, apologies for the slow response. Both of the public libraries
near my home used to have copies of Boucher, but don't any longer; I
do have my own copy of the book (no, not from the library!) but am not
at home and don't expect to get there for another couple of days. I
suspect that similar circumstances might be what is holding up answers
from a number of others on list.
Also, it is always more difficult to get a ready response from list
members when page numbers of a particular book or publication are
being referenced, rather than the convenience of an immediate link
being provided----and providing a link is hard to do if you don't have
a scanner handy, or a place to host the image once you've scanned it.
So, all that being said, could I ask you to do us a favor, in order
that we might be able to offer an opinion or several?
"Two Lovers" isn't familiar-sounding to me, and I was able to locate
only one painting via Google images that looked like it had even a
long shot at being close to the one you're so fond of. That one
painting was labeled "Paolo and Francesca," referring to the story of
Francesca da Rimini (Dante's Divine Comedy.)
Please try these urls and see if the painting you are referring to is
among them. http://tinyurl.com/5584q8 http://tinyurl.com/6q4695 http://tinyurl.com/5zwpzm http://tinyurl.com/6p4r2o (takes a while to load and you have to
scroll almost to the very bottom of the page to see the slightly
larger and slightly lighter, brighter version)
If it isn't, then please go to Google, and see if I've overlooked one.
I used the keywords: painting Paolo and Francesca
having enclosed "Paolo and Francesca" in quotation marks, and selected
Please be aware, too, that if Paolo and Francesca *are* the two lovers
of your painting, a number of those paintings will be nineteenth
century works of art: it was a very popular subject, apparently.
