    Ok #4 of 7. Lets see, obvious female figure atop a landing accessed by steps wearing a flowing gown(?), or wedding dress(?), clutching a veil or a sail(?)
    The head, however, looks strikingly reminiscent of the South American capybara;

    Qobuz puts Chris Connor in the spotlight.
    Bethlehem and Atlantic recordings.
    Indeed a beautiful voice. And great recordings for the era.

    Pay attention to how much light you see in the painting.

    Not Kundry?

    You're getting warmer. She's waving a piece of cloth. She wants to be seen. She wants to make sure people see her signal. She's signaling to people something that's going to happen to soon. Pay attention to the light.

    I'm stumped.

    The Signal
  12. FLTWS
    That makes the most sense but I can't come up anything. A signal to warn or a signal to action?
    Cloth, not flag - Brangäne (love the way that name rolls off the tongue) with Isolde's royal robe? The action not really inspirational for a painting.
    Not as familiar with pre T & I Wagner as post but this is challenging.
    The head on that woman is nightmarish in the context of the rest of the painting, floppy ears, giant eyes?
    Rienzi, Lohenghrin, the plots against them?
    I want to avoid running for the libretto's, LOL!
  13. bosiemoncrieff
    It is Brangäne's signal that day is breaking: Habet acht! Habet acht! Schon weicht dem Tag die Nacht. (Beware! Beware! Soon gives way to the day the night.) I find the pastel color a bit soft for the urgency of her warning, but it is beautifully painted nonetheless.

    The next painting would otherwise be quite difficult to identify, so I will say that the two people are blood relatives and that it occurs in the Ring cycle.

    Shootin' from the hip; Light Alberich (and by way of Grimhilde) Dark Alberich. Father & Son.
