In this preparatory study for an 1851 painting, Ingres concentrated on the woman's dress, her jewels, and the positions of her arms and hands.

To determine the figure's proportions, he drew a grid or "squared" the drawing. He freely worked out new ideas from the bodice on down, probably tracing the head and shoulders from another study. Ingres made many such preparatory sketches for his four painted portraits of Inès Moitessier, a banker's wife from a prominent family of government officials.

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres was born #onthisday  in 1780.

Bernardino Poccetti, born in Florence #onthisday in 1548, made a number of individual figure drawings in chalk as studies for painted compositions.

This figure was probably intended as a study for a wall fresco. Given the position of the legs and the angle of the man's face and arm, the final work in which he appeared was probably meant to be seen from below.

Today is the #feastday of Saint Bartholomew.

Holding a swath of cloth around his lower body that reveals the aged skin of his chest, the elderly Saint Bartholomew intently gazes off into the distance as if having a vision. He clutches a book tightly, while his attribute of flayed skin rests behind him on a stump. The skin refers to his martyrdom: Saint Bartholomew was flayed alive and beheaded on an evangelical mission to the East. Thus, tanners and artisans who worked with animal skins venerated Saint Bartholomew, making him their patron saint.

Saint Bartholomew, 18th century, Belgian. Terracotta.

Scenes from the world of myth and the world of humans decorate the neck of this Athenian black-figure volute-krater. The upper zone on one side depicts the battle of the gods and the Giants. In Greek mythology, the giants, the children of Ge (Earth) and Uranus (Sky), tried to overthrow the Olympian gods in a mighty battle. Only three gods are clearly identifiable here: Herakles with his lion skin, Athena with her snake-edged aegis, and Hermes with his special staff and winged boots. The lower frieze on this side shows various athletic contests: two runners in armor, a naked runner, a discus thrower, a javelin thrower, wrestlers, and trainers. The scene at the right shows a particularly bloody version of the pankration, a combination of wrestling and boxing in which anything was fair except biting an opponent or gouging his eyes out.

Attic Black-Figure Volute Krater, 510 - 500 B.C., Attributed to the Leagros Group (Greek (Attic), active 525 - 500 B.C.). Terracotta.

In this poignant portrait, Louis Carmontelle, born #onthisday in 1717, depicted Marie d'Albert de Luynes taking up the vogue for gardening that Queen Marie Antoinette had popularized among noble women.

Marie's wistful expression may reflect her restricted opportunities for amusement. Married at fourteen, her husband rejected her before consummating the marriage. Condemned to lifelong virginity, Marie began dressing only in white.

The illuminator almost certainly made this lively, colorful miniature for a choir book belonging to a congregation of Augustinian priests in Siena. The initial probably introduced the chants for a feast associated with Saint Augustine or Saint Monica.

Saint Ambrose, the bishop of Milan, baptizes the adult Saint Augustine as he kneels on the rose and green marble floor of a church. Augustine's mother, Saint Monica, watches the event from the right.

St. Augustine died #onthisday  in 430. #feastday  

Title: Initial L: The Baptism of Saint Augustine, about 1430, Master of the Osservanza (Italian, active 2nd quarter of the 15th century). Tempera colors, gold leaf, gold paint, and ink on parchment. http://bit.ly/2bRx9fe

Titian's Portrait of Alfonso d'Avalos, painted in Bologna in the winter of 1533, signals the inception of one of the most influential prototypes in the history of Western art--the standing state portrait.

Dressed in armor with a diminutive page looking up to him, Alfonso d'Avalos exudes the tremendous power he wielded as governor of Milan and commander general of imperial forces in Italy under the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V. As the Abbot of Brantôme--a French historian--observed, D'Avalos was a man who took great care with his appearance. He was born into an illustrious Spanish-Neapolitan family and trained for a military career under his cousin, Ferdinando Francesco, the Marchese di Pescara. After winning numerous military campaigns, D'Avalos was honored with the Order of the Golden Fleece. He is shown wearing the Order's royal collar over an elaborate and beautifully wrought suit of armor befitting an imperial leader. In the lower left, his page hands him a helmet. Titian, who may have known D'Avalos personally, endowed him with all the earnestness of a learned and contemplative man, while at the same time conveying his authority.

Titian died #onthisday  in 1576.

The words Ave gratia plena Dominus tecum (Greetings most favored one! The Lord is with you) from Luke 1:8 flow from the archangel Gabriel's mouth as he announces the conception of Christ to the Virgin Mary. Much as in modern comic books, Tommaso del Mazza visualized Gabriel's speech for the viewer to follow along. In Mary's lap the bible is opened to the prophecy of Isaiah: "Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son..." (Isaiah 7:14). Gently touching her chest, Mary leans forward to acknowledge her destiny. Above, God the Father floats in a mandorla of angels as the dove of the Holy Spirit descends to Mary at the moment of Incarnation.

Tina Modotti believed that photography had the potential to transform ordinary things into symbolic objects. Photographed at close proximity, this luminous pair of Easter lily and bud take on a sculptural quality. For Modotti, who described nature as innocent, mysterious, and erotic, the contrast between the open, light flower and the closed, dark bud may have symbolized her own emotional state.

Tina Modotti was born #onthisday  in 1896.
