1. The Eve of St. Valentine (1871). George Smith (English, 1829-1901). Oil on canvas.

    Smith studied at the RA schools and later exhibited many works at the RA and the British Institution. He specialised in genre scenes of children and young ladies. They were usually rather idyllic scenes like this work, in which the young ladies write and read Valentine messages.
