I’m fairly tempted to subtitle Edmund Blair Leighton's Off, painted in 1899, “Well, That Was Awkward.”
To quote Christie’s:
[Blair Leighton] tended to choose sentimental and anecdotal subjects in which his audience could see a reflection of their own everyday hopes, fears, woes and aspirations. As the author of the Art Annual put it, ‘as often as not he has painted contemporary life, but it has always been under the guise of the past.’
Off certainly fits that pattern: set more than a hundred years prior to its painting, it portrays the moment just after a marriage proposal has been turned down.
It looks like she didn’t even unclasp her hands from around her knees to take the bouquet he brought her—he’s dropped it at the end of the bridge.
