Pietro Antonio Rotari “Portrait of a Girl with a Book”
Girl with a Book. Pietro Antonio Rotari (1707-1762), Italian painter & print-maker of the Baroque period. In Dresden, he became known for his imaginary portraits of figures displaying various emotions, such as the so-called Portrait of a Maid (Warsaw, National Museum). Admirably composed and coloured, these works are painted with great sensitivity of observation. Died in St Petersburg, where he had traveled to paint for the Russian court.

Woman Reading. Félix Edouard Vallotton (Swiss, 1865–1925). Vallotton studied art under Jules Joseph Lefebvre and Gustave Boulanger at the Académie Julian. His earliest paintings, chiefly portraits, are in the academic tradition. His woodcut subjects included domestic scenes, bathing women, portrait heads, and several images of street crowds and demonstrations—notably, several scenes of police attacking anarchists.
