Abelard and His Pupil Héloïse (1882) by Edmund Leighton shows how the French nun and writer Héloïse is struggling with the love affair with her teacher Pierre Abélard. Héloïse lived in the 12th century and was quite influential during her life. With her writings, she has, nowadays, an important place in French literary history. Edmund Leighton (1852-1922) loved to capture this kind of Medieval stories in his work, and enjoyed leaving his paintings open for some interpretation. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #OilPaint #Affair #Love #LoveAffair #Student #Teacher #Writer #Nun #Philosopher #Struggling #Struggle #Abelard #Heloise #EdmundLeighton #Leighton #Medieval
