Description: 

Joan Grant (1907-1989) wrote novels about her recollections on past lives. ‘Winged Pharaoh’ from 1937 is the most well-known. The title of the painting is the same as the title of her autobiography. I painted her bust in an Egyptian(Nile) landscape, with a Egyptian blue lotus on the background. The old Egyptians believed that the intense scent of the blue lotus indicated the presence of a deity.
