David Teniers the Younger painted a series of four small paintings showing the seasons in about 1644. This was a subject painted several times by Teniers. Here, 'Autumn' is a drinker who raises a glass of wine: http://bit.ly/2cNvTMA

Degas is famous as a painter of ballet dancers, and the theme of the dance class or rehearsal was one of the preoccupations of his later career. The pose of the foreground dancer adjusting her slipper is repeated in numerous paintings and a sculpture. 'Ballet Dancers' hangs in Room 44: http://bit.ly/2cFx7tq

Caravaggio's 'Boy bitten by a Lizard' depicts a young boy recoiling in pain as his finger is bitten by a lizard, hidden among the fruit. The subject of this painting may have an allegorical meaning, and possibly refers to the pain that can derive from love: http://bit.ly/29uzc6h

Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot painted 'Cows in a Marshy Landscape' in about 1860-70. The pastoral subject was one that Corot returned to time and again in his later years. The trees on the left are painted in silvery tones which are typical of his late style: http://bit.ly/1q9pPzm

Cecco del Caravaggio's 'A Musician' will feature in 'Beyond Caravaggio', opening on 12 October. Book now, Members go free: http://bit.ly/2cwn3zr
Cecco del Caravaggio is better known as Caravaggio’s servant, model, and reputed lover. He was also an exceptionally gifted painter. Here, the young musician holds our gaze in an ambiguous manner. Cecco’s highly descriptive technique, both in painting the musician’s fashionable costume and the array of objects before him, owes much to Caravaggio who stressed the importance of looking at nature.
