Sir John Everett Millais, 'Mariana,' 1851, oil paint on mahogany, on loan to the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. from the Tate in London. When it was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1851 this picture was accompanied by the following lines from Tennyson's 'Mariana' (1830): "She only said, 'My life is dreary,/He cometh not,' she said;/She said, 'I am aweary, aweary,/I would that I were dead!'"

Bodiam Castle is a lovely relic from the medieval period in England. Found in the East Sussex area, this fourteenth-century structure features sturdy towers with fairy-tale crenellations, and the moat that surrounds the outer walls only adds to the picturesque appeal.
