Provencal Caprice

Russell Flint





Signed, limited edition of 750
Published by The Medici Society in 1955

Helen is the capricious maid in this lavoir scene from French Provence.
Caprice is usually accepted as an action or attitude taken at whim
without apparent motive, but the Oxford English Dictionary
relates the source of the word to capra the goat -
hardly a flattering comparison for these young ladies.
