Randomly XXI

Portrait d'un noble tenant une branche de laurier d'or et représenté à la manière du héros mythologique Énée, by Nicolas Régnier, circa 1660.
Portrait of a lady, by Alexandre Roslin, circa 1780.

No photographs this time! I wanted the paintings - and a few drawings - to shine on their own without the distraction of the often cheeky and/or bizarre photographs I usually include. As always, though, I - randomly - pulled the images here from the vast collection of things I've tossed into the "Randomly" folder on my laptop. And also, as always, I'm surprised at how the gathered images "speak" to each other. In this instance I happened to pull several examples of the work of the same artists. Roslin, Boilly, Constantin Hansen. And then several pieces related to artists from the Golden Age of Danish Painting, both portrayed and portraying. And then there're the pairings or groupings of color and pose and detail that so frequently show up in these unplanned collections. Or just the funny or telling juxtapositions. As someone as fussy and controlled as I am in all my artistic endeavors, I really enjoy seeing how these particular posts shake out; it's rather nice to just sit back and let my subconscious do all the heavy lifting.
