Vera Bock, from A Ring and a Riddle
Little Red Riding Hood by Jessie Wilcox Smith
From Portraits of Women by Ikenaga Yasunari. These are really awesome works by a modern Japanese painter. I love the echo of traditionalism with a more modern naturalism/realism. The colors are very true to the historic paintings - as is the beautifully detailed pattern-work. The compositions reflect the beautiful simplicity of the traditional portraiture.
