  1. A wonderful tribute, Marina, and I agree with the others. Madame Ingres is very lovely, but Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres has a look of disapproval. 🙂 Hugs xoxoxo

  2. Your tributes are brilliant, Marina. I remember the first time I saw your “tribute” post to Jean-August-Dominque Ingres. And I went back to view all the paintings again. They way he is able to bring the materials together. It is as if I can touch the taffeta and silk. I especially appreciated his painting – Napoleon I on his Imperial Throne. Can you imagine how Monsieur Ingres must have felt when he unveiled the painting to Napoleon. The first thought that would come to mind for me would be: – I hope he likes the painting!

    • A ha ha, yes… that’s probably why he did such an incredible job on his cloak, laurel, sceptre, golden embroidery, velvet, fur…. now here’s an example of a painting you really want to touch!!!! 🤣🤣🤣
      Thank you, my dearest Rebecca!

  3. Beautiful painting, I love the portrait of Lady Ingres, the detail in the fabric of her dress! The portrait of the painter is rather solemn or stern as Timothy said. xoxoxo
