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

Eye Candy for Today: Ingres portrait of Princesse de Broglie

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:42 pm

Princesse de Broglie, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres
Joséphine-Éléonore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brassac de Béarn (1825–1860), Princesse de Broglie, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

In addition to dazzling the eye with his handling of face, figure, fabric and jewelry, Ingres leaves no doubt that he has nailed the sitter’s likeness.

    One of my skin tone gods. When I see the work in person I want to plant gentle kisses on the skin.

    *sigh* Simply perfection! When I was little and my mom would take me to the fabric store, I had to touch every piece of fabric in there. This painting makes me want to touch the fabrics here as well! ! !

    And I agree with Bill, his mastery of skin tones is superb! And again . . . *sigh* :)

    Check this out. It’s a painting of Princess Jasmine inspired by this painting. http://media-cache-ak3.pinimg.com/736x/15/24/28/152428ac42b985cd1ed668d2ddc35dd5.jpg
