The painting above is one of my favorite works by Marie-Denise Villers in 1801. This painting makes me feel calm whenever I take a close look at it. Her eyes are trying to tell us something about herself. Marie-Denise Villers was born in Paris, in 1774. Her first exibition was made at the Paris Salon in the year 1799 where she received many praises and to this day, still is praised.
