Probably the first Question is why is this titled the unknown painting and the truth is I don’t know the name of the painting. Besides that though why am I blogging about it, and that’s another good question. There are two reasons, the first being I love the style of the painting and the shape of her face is very sharp at the front then nicely flows into a more shaded and dimensional look. Also I always find backgrounds of paintings interesting because how do you choose the background if it has nothing to do with the main focus, but I love all the blended shades of color for the background staying rather consistent but different. Or maybe the background does have a meaning with the color choice, who knows?
