The Accolade – Leighton


     This beautiful painting by E. Leighton shows a Medieval princess, dressed in flowing white robes, bestowing an accolade, an award, upon a soldier. The chivalrous warrior kneels, dressed in a red tunic and chainmail, accepting the bestowal of knighthood from the woman with her symbolic touch of his shoulders with a sword.
