I had some time in the world section of the National Gallery of Canada before its closing for the day, but not a lot, so this time out we have less of the world art than I've shown you of Canadian art.
Portrait Of A Young Lady is an oil painting circa 1520-30 by the Italian artist Bartolomeo Veneto.
This altarpiece is titled The Virgin And Child With Saints, done around 1476-77 by Benozzo Gozzoli, commissioned for a church in Pisa.
The Abduction Of Europa is an oil canvas by the Dutch painter Caesar Boethus van Everdingen, done around 1650. He depicts the Greek myth of Zeus changing into a bull and carrying away the maiden Europa when she caught his eye- something that happened a lot with the overly frisky king of the gods.
A Sermon In The Old Church In Delft is by Emanuel de Witte, a Dutch painter, circa 1650-51. The artist focuses both on the architecture and the people in his use of light.
Rembrandt van Rijn is the painter at work here. A Woman At Her Toilet is the title of this, done around 1632-33. She may be a Biblical subject- Judith, Esther, or Bathsheba.
This is an upper view of the reflecting pool I showed you earlier.
A Waterfall comes from the Dutch artist Jacob van Ruisdael, done between 1660-70. It places humanity as a fleeting presence among nature.
Young Woman With A Fan is an oil painting by the Italian artist Pietro Rotari, done between 1754-56.
