Jacques-André Portail

This painting has long been my favourite.  When I paint, I want to paint a Portail.

It is a watercolour painting, over traces of graphite, and is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York.  It is also featured on the internet with other works by Jacques-André Portail (1695-1759).

After writing my blog this morning, I had a malaise.  So let this painting be my post for the day.

Allow me to wish you a lovely weekend.

Here is the gift of music: Adagio, by Chopin.
