Self-Portrait (1892). Anna Bilińska-Bohdanowicz (Polish, 1857-1893). 
Self-Portrait was unfinished. The natural ease of the pose, a modesty of the attire, the attributes of the painter’s profession held in the hands and finally the open, bold look on the face, which conveys firmness and strength of character - clearly express the artist’s intention to present herself as an artist, who knows her worth, and as a woman, who has freed herself from the restrictions of the the era’s conventions.

Analysis aside, this is an awesome painting.

books0977:

The Two Central Figures in ‘Derby Day’ (1860). William Powell Frith (British, 1819-1909). Oil on canvas. Met.
This small painting relates to Derby Day, the enormous and climactic work of Frith’s midcareer. The only real difference between the couple in the big picture and the one here is that the purse held by the lady in Derby Day has been transformed into a pen and a notebook. The finish of the figures in the small work is unusually tight, but not unknown for Frith, and he probably had a studio assistant to help him with landscape backgrounds.

“By the mid-19th century, dentures were often referred to as “Waterloo Teeth,” after those surreptitiously ripped from the bodies of dead soldiers following the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. These high-quality specimens taken from the mouths of formerly healthy young men were actually an improvement over the typical replacement teeth used by dentists, which often came with noticeable wear, staining, or bacterial infections (though it was unlikely these would be passed on to their new owner). While publicly frowned upon, stealing teeth from dead soldiers continued throughout the Crimean War and the American Civil War.”
