A Maiden Holding a Book and Flowers (1901). Edward Reginald Frampton (English, 1872-1923). Oil on canvas.This picture is typical of the easel paintings Frampton produced on religious and symbolist themes. The subject is unclear, the attributes of book and flower being too generic to aid specific identification. Although both are found in depictions of the Annunciation, this picture appears too secular in tone to suggest that subject.
