Strawberry Girl - This painting, titled "The Strawberry Girl," was exhibited at London's Royal Academy in 1773. It is by the English artist Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792). Owing to his unfortunate habit of experimenting with pigments to discover the secrets of the Old Masters, whose canvases he would sometimes cut up for the purpose, his paintings lack permanence. Reynolds was perhaps the most popular portrait painter who ever lived. The world of fashion flocked to his studio. Amazing he had time for doing pictures such as this one, which Reynolds described as "one of the half-dozen original things which no man ever exceeded in his life work."     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Naiad - This painting, titled Naiad, was done by the French painter Jean Jacques Henner (1829-1905). His chief distinction as an artist is the revival of the forgotten art of painting soft, velvety flesh which he inspire. He did so by choosing the twilight hour, when the landscape itself loses its color, while the luminous flesh retains the light and palpitates with its glow. His "Naiad" shows his manner of doing this, and illustrates his method of painting flesh and of throwing light upon it, by which he attained an important place in the world of art.     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Life's Illusion - This 1849 painting, titled Life's Illusions, was done by the English Victorian artist and sculptor G.F. Watts (1817-1904). The outstanding passion of Watt's life was the creation of symbolical pictures each of which should convey its message to the world. Life's Illusions is the first of his great series of symbolical paintings. We see a knight in armor pursuing the brilliant bubble of glory that will dissolve into thin air as soon as he grasps it. Two lovers are on his right, while at his other side, an aged student is absorbed in contemplation of his manuscript. Near by, a child is chasing a butterfly, and all around are broken symbols of mortal greatness. Above these hover seven female forms typifying varying hopes and ambitions.     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Spanish Lady - This painting, titled "Portrait of a Spanish Lady," was done by Spanish artist Diego Velasquez (1599-1660). Velasquez was hin his early 20s when King Philip IV of Spain appointed him Court Painter. Velasquez loved the sober tints of grey and silver, and sometimes used reds and pinks. He was essentially a realist, painting from models and not from the imagination. This portrait is noteworthy as it shows a lady of a type other than that representative of Court Circles. The same model appears in "The Lady in the Mantilla."     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Angelus - This painting, titled "The Angelus," was done by the French artist Jean Francois Millet (1814-1875). Millet was one of the famous group of French painters who founded what is now known as the Barbizon School. Millet's work is distinguished by an absolute truthfulness to Nature that was the guiding principle of his life. He saw the peasant bent at his work in his fields, and he pictured him in all his gaunt poverty and weariness, while he invested him, by his inspired vision, with the symbolical dignity of labor. The Angelus depicts the laborers' thnaks for the gift of plenty, and it expresses in full measure the simplicity and devoutness of his nature. His wish was to make the spectator realize the vesper hour, when the soft chimes call the toiler to thankful rest.     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Listed - This painting, titled "Listed,"  was done by the English artist William H. Gore. "Listed" was exhibited in the Royal Academy in 1885, and was painted in the low-lying meadows of the Kennet Valley, just below Newbury, the artist's place. The subject tells its own story - as when it was first shown, as was the custom, the man is given ribbons to wear on his cap at the time of enlistment. The man, brave in his trappings of glory, is parting from the woman, whose thought most likely is of the danger of his calling.     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

Man with Gloves - The artist Franz Hals (1580-1666) was a Dutch Golden Age painter. This piece by him is titled "Man with a Glove in His Hand." Hals was the founder of the Dutch school of genre painting. His masterly delineations of expression and character make his works among the most popular in the world. This painting was one of Hals' favorite small canvases, showing a half-length figure. The man has a strong rugged face beneath a large black hat, set against a sombre background.
