A Young Man Among the Roses

circa 1588

Why is it canonical?

The Renaissance reached England most prominently in the form of poetry, lyrics, and theater. This painted image corresponds with the imagery often evoked by these art forms, and features a figure that sought to portray himself in the same life as these heartsick romantics.
