1. Portrait of a Young Lady (1885). Albert Edelfelt (Finnish, 1854-1905). Oil on canvas.

    "The worst thing is that I am so fed up with these so-called Parisian subjects, these little women (petites femmes), that I can no longer bear to see without thinking of all the wretched painting, superficial and cute, that one has to do with them. The models look all the same to me; I can achieve neither veracity or character when I paint them; their poses, always the same, annoy me, and that false prettyish elegance drives me insane." — Edelfelt
