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.
