Hippolyte FLANDRIN Portrait of a Lady


  1. Nice post. There is definitely a lot of Ingres in these but at times his work reminds me more of the German Nazarenes. The 1842 Pieta seems really out of place. Is it maybe unfinished? Either way, I like it!

  2. Thank you John.
    You're right, the Pieta seems out of place. And even in France, we don't know if it is unfinished or not.
