Portraits: Ser Loras Tyrell

I first saw this painting in the Orsay in Paris and was attracted to it out of my love of knights and fairies and fantasy.  At the time, I hadn’t yet read ASOIAF, but I recently looked through some old pictures and saw Loras immediately.  He even shares almost the same title with the painting!
