The Love Letter

In this hurried digital age, with BlackBerry phones, texting, and emails, the art of writing letters got lost somehow.

Nothing can replace the ritual of opening a love letter, from noticing the beautiful penmanship of the writer and reading the heartfelt words to keeping the treasured letter in a safe place. That is why many of the old masters sought to express and capture this moment in paintings.

Today I’ll leave you with various romantic portraits titled The Love Letter.
Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your loved ones.
