So much to love

I’m reading “Pride and Prejudice”, a version which happens to have the below picture on the front cover.


The painting is “Congratulations” by George Henry Harlow. Here is my list of concerns about the painting:

1. Why are these young women clearly teething?

2. Who stretched out their necks like that?

3. Why is a man’s hand protruding from the right-hand woman’s neck?

4. Why is the left-hand woman’s head and neck not attached to the left-hand body (I don’t care how good your corset is, chests do not stick out that far)?


It seems I’m not the only person who just can’t draw hands.
