ABOUT THE ARTWORK
In Madame Menagerie, a woman with bobbed red hair sits on a decorative four-poster bed attired in a laced black and gold gown. She has a menagerie of exotic birds and even monkeys around her. Shot at Greystone Court, New York, artist Miss Aniela has fused her photography with monkeys and birds from Menagerie, by Melchior d' Hondecoeter, 1690. Curled around a bedpost is the snake from Cadmus & Harmonia by Evelyn de Morgan.
