Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Name That Classical Painting!

Join in on this fun, exciting game!

Can you identify the artist of the painting below?

You don't have to know art history to play. If you can use a search engine to track clues, you can do well at this game (that's how I play!). It's a fun way to learn about art history.

If you name the artist, you will have the honor of posting the next mystery classical painting. If you are sure of your answer, feel free to post the next painting right away.

BUT - please rename your image. Players will right click on the image to find what you have named it, so don't give any clues away.

Good luck!

Here is one you might recognize (an easy one to start off with!):



This thread was inspired by Jodi's (jo b) Legion of Honor thread. Thanks for the inspiration, Jodi!

It is posted for less then 1 hour and you guys are already asking for a hint??? Boy, that does not seem like much of an effort to me, but ok..... a small one to start.
The Artist is from the Baroque era.
Have a good night all, I am going to bed, maybe by the morning, someone will have guessed it right.

Jodi

Re: Name That Classical Painting!

I give up another hour and half searching and nothing.

Hope someone else is having a better luck.

Jodi, the tip is indeed very small. How much baroque painters are there on the past??? EEk, just too many. Ok a question, is it from a well known baroque painter or not??
Just another hint!!! Thank you.

Re: Name That Classical Painting!

C'mon guys the art history forum is laughing at us. Would it be Bathsheba by Willem Drost?

Hope I'm not being overly confident, but here's the next. One of my favorites. Shouldn't be too tough.
