In the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Click on “Fullscreen” under then image, then use zoom or download arrow. There is an image of the painting in the ornate, portal-like frame Leighton chose for it here.

“Lachrymae” is latin for “tears”.

    Please, is there any detailed info on the frame, Charley? Fits the perfect painting like a glove. I’d say, really, the man has taste, and so do you, for choosing it.
