Masterpieces Of A Bygone Period
Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy-Trioson painted this portrait with a showstopper of a name- Erneste Bioche de Misery in 1807.
A wider view.
Wisdom Defending Youth From The Arrows Of Love is a large 1810 canvas by Charles Meynier.
Love Seduces Innocence, Pleasure Entraps, And Remorse Follows is by Pierre-Paul Prud-hon, dating to 1809.
The next couple of gallery spaces were actually closed off for reorganization or a new paint job to the walls, so I had to backtrack a bit to link up to further world art. For today, I finish with views of Dancer and this large space.
