The Image of the Day

I decided to post every now and then a picture, either from a painting, a landscape, a representative building, and sculpture, whatever! Sometimes a picture says more than thousand words and though it is important to know about and artist life, I am sure that a better homage would be to show his work for the people to enjoy it. In this case, the painting is "Damen med slöjan"(The Lady with the Veil ) painted in 1768 by Alexander Roslin, a Swedish painter from the XVIII century whose main works consist on portraits of the aristocracy. The lady depicted in the painting is Marie-Suzanne Giroust, Roslin's wife herself.

Asi es amigo carrizo. La pintura es un de los tesoros del Museo Nacional de Ruotsi en Estocolmo. Hablando de pinturas, ya viste que puse las de Gallen-Kallela? tambien me encantan.


Hyvää viikonloppua!!
