  1. What a beautiful painting, I've never seen it before. Sooo neoclassical!

  2. This is one of my favorite paintings at the Musée Carnavalet! It is small but the detail of it is like a fine gem stone! Looking at it up close you can't see any brush strokes.

    @Andrew1860 that is one of my favorite museums! I do not remember seeing it when I was there, next time I will pay particular attention to it!

  4. I've never seen it either. Is there a story behind it? The dress fabrics look luscious.

  5. I can almost feel the cushy-ness of that floor pillow. We ought to bring those back in style.
