1. Portrait of a Lady (c.1860). Jean Hippolyte Flandrin (French, 1809-1864). Oil on canvas.

    Like Ingres, Flandrin believed that a true draftsman would find the proper colors with which to clothe his forms. In his decorations he sought harmonious combinations of color that were appropriate to the subject and pleasing to the eye. That the color of his portraits is more natural and observed from life than most of his non-impressionist contemporaries is evident in his lovely and charming Portrait of a Lady.
