Source: drhrachThe portrait of Empress Maria Alexandrovna (1857) by Franz Xaver Winterhalter is used here. Maria Alexandrovna was involved with several charity organizations in Russia, notably the Red Cross. Schools and colleges for females were established throughout the country as a result of her efforts. However, due to her precarious health, she had a very guarded life, particularly in her later years. She is seen in the photograph nicely dressed in opulent clothing. There is also a little tilt of the head and a serious stare, indicating the Empress's immersion in her own internal world.
#14 Michelle Pfeiffer
Source: pcysmithAdélade Labille-1785 Guiard's self-portrait, Self-Portrait with Two Pupils - is seen here. This work of art was created during a time when women had very little influence and were rarely employed in jobs other than that of a housewife. Adelaide is seen in the artwork while she is painting, while her two students (both of whom are female) look over her shoulder in admiration. In some ways, the painting is a proclamation of Adelaide's pride in her trade and her own skill. The artwork conveys a strong statement about altering women's roles, the right to seek higher education and creative freedom. Adelaide was successful in reserving four spaces at the French Academy of Painting and Sculpture for women.

The purpose of the portrait was not to create an idealized representation of Muffel, but to show him as realistically as possible. The inscription reads: EFFIGIES JAKOBI MVFFEL AETATIS SVAE ANNO LV SALVTIS VERO MDXXVI.

Because of their smooth and delicate coloring and superb workmanship, Dubufe's paintings were appreciated, especially among the ladies. Although the preceding piece is really outstanding, the Peace Congress of 1856 in Paris (1857,) and The Prodigal Son (1857) are two of Dubufe's most well-known paintings (1866).

That of a young man dressed in green.
