Who Painted This? #51

The image this week was a challenge to me from Bernadette Madden to celebrate the 50th "Who painted this?". I was a bit pushed for time but sad to say I didn't get it - but I got close!

Who painted this? #51

You need to tell me - as a comment on this blog
  1. who painted this 
  2. including all the basics I want to know (see link to rules below).
  3. plus what you can find out about this artist and/or artwork 
The winner will be the person with the BEST complete answer rather than the first to respond - so you don't have to rush and you do have time to do some research.  Just get your answer to me by the end of Thursday your time.

For those who've not risen to the challenge before please take a minute to read the rules - see below.  The questions which need answering don't stop at "Who painted this?"

In short:
  • use your brains not software to find the answer - search using words only on a database of images

  • if correct it will not be published until the next post - which provides the answer
  • if wrong it will be published
  • the winner - who gets a mention and a link on/from this blog - is NOT THIS WEEK the first person to give me a completely correct answer for ALL the things I want to know. It's the person who does all this AND provides the BEST answer (see above)

Who painted this #50? - A number of people got the answer correct and are listed below in alphabetical order

I'm learning a lot from the narrative answers which are getting better and better.  I can't do better than say click the link and go read the comments if you'd like to know more about this artist who had her own studio in The Louvre!  She was the mistress of the still life!

This week, I think the best answer was the one provided by John O'Grady (John O'Grady paintings)
