Violin Player with a Wine Glass, 1623. Creator: Dirck van Baburen (Dutch, c. 1595-1624)

Violin Player with a Wine Glass, 1623. A native of Utrecht, Dirck van Baburen spent several years in Italy and was among the first artists to introduce Caravaggio's revolutionary style to the Netherlands. From about 1600, the Italian artist's unsparing naturalism and strong lighting effects had transformed painting throughout Europe. Adopting Caravaggio's innovations, Baburen positioned his half-length musician so close to the picture plane that he seems to project into our space. Infectious spontaneity and loose, colourful dress marks him as a figure at the edges of society, unbound by behavioral norms--enhanced by his bold gaze, unshaven face, and cheeky grin complete with broken tooth

Dummy Board of a Girl in Costume of the William and Mary Period

Wooden painted screen dating from around 1689-1702. Dummy boards were usually placed in empty spaces, such as a staircase or empty fireplace, in large houses. They may have been amusement pieces, created to trick the eye into thinking the painted boards were real people. This kind of painting, known as trompe l'oeil, was very popular at the time. The girl is pictured wearing fashion typical of the period including a long gown with sleeves to the elbow to show an under-sleeve of white lace and a black silk pinner (apron). Her hair is worn high with a frontage headdress. She is carrying a spaniel on one arm and holding a black mask in her other hand. These masks were sometimes worn by women when walking or riding outdoors to protect the face from sunburn. During this period it was fashionable to have pale skin
