Here is Marie-Suzanne Giroust looking super coy and sexy in a portrait painted by her Swedish husband. Madame Roslin was also an artist in her own right, working mainly with oils and pastels.

Matthias Stom - Young Man Reading by Candlelight [1628-32] by Gandalf
Via Flickr:
Matthias Stom is believed to have been a pupil of Gerrit van Honthorst in Utrecht, before going to Rome in 1628. He mainly painted genre pieces and biblical subjects. His works differ from Honthorst’s in that the faces of his subjects are more highly elaborated and have broader features and more furrows. His paintings make use of a warmer palette, dominated by reds and yellows. While in Rome Stom painted several genre pieces like the present work.

<br />Sven Richard Bergh (Stockholm, December 28, 1858 - January 29, 1919) was a Swedish painter. Bergh took an interest in psychology and incorporated it into his art, as evident by his painting Hypnotic Seance &quot;with its evocation of the widespread contemporary interest in suggestion and hysteria.&quot; He had soon established himself as a portrait painter in Sweden, although his landscape paintings played an important role in the development of Swedish romantic nationalism.

64 days in heaven and hell (131)
Day 44, December 5
A couple of days earlier the weather had improved. It had given Gauguin an opportunity to escape from the Yellow House and find some peace and quiet outside. He made sketches, that he used for paintings that he finished in the studio.

Monet at Poissy (30)
At the edge
The weather wasn’t helping Monet a lot during his summer painting campaign in Pourville. He had to wait for bright spells with patience. These edge of the cliff views seem to illustrate quite different weather conditions.
