Ingres: Comtesse d’Haussonville – The Frick Collection
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (29 August 1780 – 14 January 1867) was a French Neoclassical painter. He said: “Drawing includes three and half quarters of the content of painting…Drawing contains everything except the hue.” And you can see his focus on drawing even in his paintings. In this video you will find some historical info about the Comtesse d’Haussonville portrait.
Google has worked with seventeen art museums, including The Frick Collection and three other US institutions (The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, in New York and, the Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian, in Washington D.C.), to create an online resource where visitors can explore museums from around the world, discover and view works of art at very powerful zoom levels, and even create and share their own virtual collections of masterpieces. The results of this global partnership can be explored at googleartproject.com.
