Or Josie for Short

Princesse Albert de Broglie, née Joséphine-Eléonore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brassac de Béarn, 1853 by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Ingres portraits are some of the most amazing studies of people and how we adorn ourselves. His skill at rendering the faces and capturing his sitters makes him among the finest portraitists ever.

So different from the William Hunt portrait. Both are full of beautiful women, things and detail, scrumptious dresses, intimacy. This one though is so removed compared to the Hunt shown below. Lovely but distant. The other: lovely and thinking about the painter?
