This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Art and Literature designed from a painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau shows an allegorical representation of art and literature and how they relate to each other as interpreted long ago. One woman is holding a tablet while the other is holding a lyre. The women are dressed in Grecian/Romanesque attire, and your attention is drawn to them rather than the calming effects of the background. This is definitely a masterpiece to stitch that will definitely become a a conversation piece for discussion. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
