He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.
- Sonia Delaunay
Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Eye Candy for Today: Ingres portrait

Posted by Charley Parker at 10:59 am

Comtesse d'Haussonville, by Jean-August-Dominique Ingres
Following up on my recent Eye Candy post about an Ingres graphite portrait, I couldn’t help but think of this well known and beautiful portrait painting.

Comtesse d’Haussonville, by Jean-August-Dominique Ingres, on Google Art Project. Use controls at lower right to zoom in.

Note the way he has carefully handled the reflection of the back of her head in the mirror and the attention given the incidental objects in the room.

Here is the painting on the site of the Frick Collection.
