I love each and every one of those pictures. My personal fav has always been Madame X and a painting he did of Isabella Syewart Gardner. I love your blog so much. I wish Angela would do one so we can keep in touch better!
Have a great wednesday!

The Gardner painting is lovely, too.

I wish I had Lady Agnew's waistline.
