Glinda, the good Sorceress of Oz, sat in the grand court of her palace, surrounded by her maids of honor—a hundred of the most beautiful girls of the Fairyland of Oz. The palace court was built of rare marbles, exquisitely polished. Fountains tinkled musically here and there; the vast colonnade, open to the south, allowed the maidens, as they raised their heads from their embroideries, to gaze upon a vista of rose-hued fields and groves of trees bearing fruits or laden with sweet-scented flowers. At times one of the girls would start a song, the others joining in the chorus, or one would rise and dance, gracefully swaying to the music of a harp played by a companion. And then Glinda smiled, glad to see her maids mixing play with work.
The Good Witch of the South is the most powerful sorceress in all of the Land of Oz. Glinda is the ruler of the Quadling Country south of the Emerald City, and appears in all the Oz books. This canvas depicts the cover of "Glinda of Oz", the 14th book in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum, published in 1920.
