FROM THE ARCHIVE 4th November 2014

What fun to have sold a whacking great print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters on Fine Art America. It’s a delightfully cheeky oil painting; it’s a great shame the art…

Created with a map image from TanEphemeraKitchenLabels via Design Cuts, a texture from Lenabem-Anna J, and a lady and postcard back from The Graphics Fairy.

What fun I had layering and putting together Mirror Image! Now, I’m not a symmetrical sort of person and I’m a great fan of asymmetrical clothing and so forth. In other words, I like misalignment in various guises. However, if something needs to be aligned and I’ve done it mathematically but it doesn’t look as if it is, I will adjust according to my overall view — perhaps not advisable when you have a cataract, but that’s how I’ve played it. This, however, was a test of my good right eye and there was a lot of squinting to get every element entirely aligned in order to create a mirror image. It was before the operation!

What fun to have sold a whacking great print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters on Fine Art America. It’s a delightfully cheeky oil painting; it’s a great shame the artist is unknown. Who would have thought that such a sassy image would have been acceptable in 1594!

Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters, or Portrait presume de Gabrielle d’Estrees et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to Francois Clouet. The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau. Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.

This painting is one of my all-time favourites and when I have the money, I shall buy an enormous framed version for my living room.

Gabrielle d’Estrées and one of her sisters, or Portrait présumé de Gabrielle d’Estrées et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to François Clouet.  The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau.  Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.

The images and links in today’s post are to Fine Art America and Fine Art England (new site) but I have, in fact, just sold a print of the painting at Zazzle, which is immensely pleasing.
