"In The Sonnet Lambert created an allegory in which a man reads a sonnet to his female companion who gazes contemplatively out of the painting. They seem unaware of the nude young woman who sits between them; she exists, as it were, on another plane, a metaphysical construct conjured up by the poet in the lines of the sonnet." http://books0977.tumblr.com/post/129952916307/the-sonnet-c1907-george-lambert-australian National Gallery of Australia.
