LEONARDO da Vinci Portrait of Cecilia Gallerani (Lady with an Ermine) The graceful and slender profile of the ermine is mirrored by the curious close-fitting hairstyle wrapped under the chin of the lovely young lady.

MANET, Edouard A Bar at the Folies-Bergère The mirror behind her shows the many dozens of guests in the beautiful restaurant. It’s wonderful how, amongst all these people, Manet managed to isolate the young lady so poignantly.

GOGH, Vincent van Starry Night The bold brush strokes of swirling sky and bright colors fills with so much energy and excitement. The dead, dusky tree in the foreground offers an ominous contrast. And, because it looks like a castle, it gives the scene a real fairy tale feeling.

BOTTICELLI, Sandro Primavera Just look at the contrast between the dark fruit tree background and the lily-white human figures here! The way Botticelli has illuminated this scene makes think that photography will never be able to match his achievement in rendering such a mystical and romantic effect.
