  • The Wedding Party c. 1905, Henri Rousseau
    This composition is one of the most ambitious ever undertaken by Rousseau, consisting of a large-sized group portrait in which each face is individualized, placed before a group of trees whose species are all meticulously differentiated.

    It is one of Rousseau's most famous works, exhibited at the Salon des Independants of 1905. The identity of the figures is not known, except for the artist himself, who is depicted to the right behind the bride.

  • Portia, 1886, John Everette Millais
    This picture was long incorrectly identified as a portrait of the actress Ellen Terry (1847–1928) in one of her most famous roles, Portia in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. In fact, it shows actress Kate Dolan dressed in the costume that Miss Terry wore in Act IV of the play.

  • Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875) was a French landscape and portrait painter as well as a printmaker in etching. He is a pivotal figure in landscape painting and his vast output simultaneously references the Neo-Classical tradition and anticipates the plein-air innovations of Impressionism.

  • Portrait of Pope Paul III, 1543 Titian. (8)
    The Last Judgement was a response to thd protestant reformation.

    Not long after the completion of these frescoes, in 1517, the Protestant Reformation took form under the leadership of Martin Luther in Northern Europe. The Last Judgement was Pope Paul III’s response to uncertainty within the Catholic Church. Meant to be ‘scary,’ the narrative was overwhelming to anyone viewing it: a reminder of Christ’s pending return and that followers of the Church would have to answer for their sins.
