I had a hard time with this one. I try not to go with the obvious, but when you get to the letter I there aren't so many choices, and nothing resonated with me more than the obvious choice. So, without further ado, let's look at paintings by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. (And if you want to read a little about him, you can go to his Wikipedia entry here.)
Here's the image I think of first, and she is beautiful:
And here is another famous one. Ingres obviously was a lover of women's backs--and I agree that they are often one of our best features!
He has become most famous, though, for his portraits. At different times in his career, he was reduced to drawing portraits of tourists and diplomatic personnel, because he had no high level commissions. But here is one of his commissioned works. Don't you love her dress?
This man looks as if he could step out of the painting to me. He's that real.
But then I found these last two images, which are quite lovely, and not mentioned at all in the Wikipedia entry. Don't know why. I think they are beautiful.
Happy Friday ya'll!
