Portrait of a Lady (1530-1535). Pier Francesco Foschi (Italian, Mannerism, 1502-1567). Oil on panel. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. The plain architectural background in the style of the period infuses the painting with a sense of solemnity and isolation which accentuates the sitter’s expression, halfway between serious and sad.

The Pre-Raphaelite (1857). Henry O’Neil (English, 1817-1880). Oil on panel. A satire. O’Neil was virulent in his condemnation of the Pre-Raphaelites, attacking them in both paint and words. This picture formed a humorous pendant to The Post Raphaelite, under the joint heading, The Two Extremes.
