Paintings of women in the past, mostly Regency.
The Love Letter (c.1890s). William McGregor Paxton (American, Boston School, Impressionism, 1869–1941). Oil on canvas.
Elizabeth Vigée-Lebrun - Portrait of the countess Skavronskaia, oil on canvas, 1790.

This has to be one of my favorite paintings depicting the Fashion of the Regency Era.
Marguerite Gerard: La dame avec son chat Note the bracelet worn over the sleeve!
ca. 1810 Madame de Staël by Baron François Pascal Simon Gérard. Mme. de Staël wears a colorful red- and white-striped turban and a red Empire-style dress
Jacoba van Wessem (1801-56), wife of Mr. Stumphius, Mayor of Beverwijk, Dirk Orientals Keeps, about 1820 - about 1830
Sir Thomas Lawrence P.R.A, (1769-1830), English Allegorical Portrait of Louisa, Countess of Sandwich, as “Hope”, 18th century
Portrait of a Lady with an Ostrich Plume Hat by Joseph Clover (1779-1853), date not given (ca late 1810’s?), Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery
The Love Letter (1875). Pio Ricci (Italian, Academic, Classical, 1850-1919). Oil on canvas. The heroines of Riccis elegant paintings are often beautiful women wearing luxurious, silky fabrics. The Love Letter is a fine example of this artists ability to use the canvas to express suspense and emotion.
