Orlando

Oil on canvas on board, 30 X 40 cm.

This is a cover illustration for an upcoming book, Helte fra verdenslitteraturen (‘Heroes from World Litterature’) by Abigail Josephsen. We agreed that Virginia Woolf’s Orlando would be the perfect covergirl (-boy?). (S)he is depicted here by the end of the 18th century; at this point, (s)he has been a woman for more than 100 years, but walks the streets of London dressed as a man.
