Thank you to those of you who participated in week one. The artist was Francisco Goya and the painting is called "The Dog." One of the nicer of his Black Paintings, which he painted onto the walls of his home after recovering from a severe illness, this series also included his famous "Saturn Devouring His Children." One of the more gruesome paintings in history, I will spare you here!
Now, on to week two. For this week's challenge I have chosen this image:
The painter was a woman who was a founding member of the Royal Academy of Arts in London (one of two), although she was originally from switzerland. Her style was sort of a blend of several movements in her time and her work is not widely remembered today. Happy searching!
4-23-07 Note: Spoiler warning! I've had one diligent soul who has already solved the mystery, so if you want to find out on your own, don't look at the comments until you're ready to share what you find. I'll try to get another challenge up in the next couple days, instead of waiting a week. Congrats Zoe!
