Studying Children

Estudio c.1905

Carlos María Herrera (1875-1914) was a Uruguayan painter, born in Montevideo. As a specialist in portraits, Herrera was popular among the high society of Montevideo. His portraits of women and children display his mastery of pastel, his favored medium. 

The Boys Workhouse, 1885

Albert Edelfelt  (1854 - 1905), one of the most important Finnish visual artists, was well known in his time not only in Finland and contributed to winning respect for Finnish culture abroad.

Preparing for Examinations, 1864

Ilya Yefimovich Repin (1844 – 1930) was a Russian realist painter. He was the most renowned Russian artist of the 19th century

A boy reading, possibly Nicolaes Hals, the son of the painter, c.1638-1640

Frans Hals the Elder (c. 1582 –  1666) was a Dutch Golden Age portrait painter who lived and worked in Haarlem. He is notable for his loose painterly brushwork, and he helped introduce this lively style of painting into Dutch art. Hals played an important role in the evolution of 17th-century group portraiture.
