  1. 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!
