Eye Candy for Today: Ingres portrait of Princesse de Broglie

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.

  1. *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* 🙂
