A Portrait of a Lady....

Well, I left you with some portraits of gentlemen, so it seems fitting that I return with a post on the portrayal of ladies in art. I have not annotated the name of each subject, but I am sure that they will appeal to your senses all the same...

And while we're on the subject, here is the trailer for the film adaptation of Henry James' 1881 novel, The Portrait of a Lady...


  1. very nice, i like a lot old portraits, If i had room and money i would have a room with walls full of it :-)


  2. What a tease.

    7th & 10th - by Sargent?
    13th - Marie Antoinette, by J-B Gautier Dagoty
    14th - Mdm de Pompadour, by Francois Boucher.

    and the second last one Cate Blanchette as Queen Elizabeth I, and the last one a montage of Queen Elizabeth II in Monroe pose.

  3. What is the name of the 7th, it's fabulous! Also, I adore your blog, Thanks! -Amber
