Ladies

We went to the DIA yet again last night to see a movie, "Note by Note, the making of piano #L1037" at the DFT. (The Movie was very interesting, informative and good.)

At the DIA, I found myself enthralled by portraits of ladies in the European Gallery. I only got two names though, Lady Beechley and Baby by George Romney (#1) and Mrs. Alexander Campbell by Henry Raeburn (#3) I thought I was recording all the names and artists, but I missed a lot--again--I apologize. The fourth one is taken at a weird angle because of the reflections. I apologize for that, too.

There are three kinds o portraits in this gallery, whole body, half body, and bust or head. In the last picture, you can see examples of each.

All of the paintings are nice. They look larger than life.

How wonderful - these paintings. Lucky you being allowed to photograph them. Here, in a museum, I doubt this would be permitted. Super blog entry.
