"Rose-hedged before him stood a nunnery's walls..."
(Excerpt from: "How Lancelot Came to the Nunnery in Search of the Queen" by S. Weir Mitchell)

There are many stories and legends about Queen Guinevere and her relationships with her husband, King Arthur, and the great knight, Sir Lancelot. One version claims that following the death of Arthur, Guinevere entered a nunnery and remained there until her death. Another account states that she felt deep sorrow for having loved Lancelot and, because of her betrayal of Arthur, she chose to live her life at a convent in repentance.
The Rose of Guinevere - Detail
The Rose of Guinevere, a symphony of symbols and a kaleidoscope of colors, softly and gently reveals Guinevere's journey from Camelot's castle battlements to the hushed walls of the abbey. In this montage painting, the beautiful Guinevere, Camelot's lost queen, appears as serious and reflective among the reminders of her humanness - love's crimson rose, the knight in armor, the table round. Reflections of another time and space. Fleeting memories of another life.
