Salvatore Quasimodo | Anno Domini MCMXLVII

Avete finito di battere i tamburi
a cadenza di morte su tutti gli orizzonti
dietro le bare strette alle bandiere,
di rendere piaghe e lacrime a pietà
nelle città distrutte, rovina su rovina.

Gustave Jacquet | Portrait / Genre painter

During the 19th century, particularly in France, people developed a vivid fascination with the past and paintings of the bygone eras were in demand.
Jacquet specialised in painting figures, portraits and genre subjects in which he evoked the elegance of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. These works were exquisitely painted with every attention paid to detail; his use of colour is rich and vibrant and his rendition of luxurious cloth is outstanding.
