Pietro Antonio Rotari Portraits

Pietro Antonio Rotari was an Italian painter (1707-1762) of the Baroque period.
Here are some of his unusual portraits of young women -shyly peeking out from behind a book or a cape, dozing and crying. There is something wonderfully modern about these compositions.
Art history never ceases to amaze me. I keep on discovering.
Out with the new and in with the old.
