A SCOTTISH LASS & THE MOON GODDESS
BEAUTY WITH RED HAIR
The origins of the name Cynthia can be traced to Artemis, the ancient Greek goddess of the moon, and the location of her birth, Mt. Cynthus on Delos.
Scottish artist William Strang (1859-1921) was a talented painter as well as etcher. Although his sitters included prominent authors such as George Bernard Shaw and George Meredith, Strang’s portrayal of the pensive Cynthia above is one of his most riveting works.
