Ingres, Jean-Auguste-Dominique.  Joan of Arc at the Coronation of Charles VII in Reims Cathedral.  1854.  Oil on canvas.  Louvre Museum, Paris.  

An incredibly intriguing figure in world history, Joan of Arc has many depictions in art and rightfully so.  I find the halo around her head to be an interesting touch considering the time period and the discrimination of women, though it does not surprise me considering her deeds.  The way in which the artist has such an attention to detail makes me believe that it was composed from life but obviously that cannot be so, as it was composed 400 years after Joan of Arc was alive.  Maybe the artist constructed the background and did that from life.  The skill here is amazing and a great tribute to a deserving figure in history.

Tamara de Lempicka - the first artist to be a glamour star. Known for her Art Deco paintings of chic and elegant women, they epitomised the spirit of the times.

During the roaring twenties in Paris, Lempicka led a bohemian lifestyle mixing with Picasso and Cocteau.

Contemporary collectors of her work include Madonna, Jack Nicholson and Barbara Streisand. Not bad… not bad at all.
