Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth. It depicts Christina Olson, who had polio, lying on the ground in a treeless, mostly tawny field, looking up at and crawling towards a grey house on the horizon. Christina was the artist's neighbor in Maine, who, crippled by polio, "was limited physically but by no means spiritually."

“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream | Francoise Nielly Paintings 2011
