Painted Ladies through the Ages

This is my contribution to this year's Island Dreams charity set, due out 1st August (see here for details). These of course are the original locations for these paintings, alot of which the artists swapped for dingy studio backgrounds to help maintain their poor & starving reputation. Couldn't have patrons thinking they were swanning around painting in paradise as the money would soon dry up.
Inspired by da Vinci, Botticelli, Vermeer, Rubens, Rossetti, Beardsley, Mucha, Klimt, Singer-Sarjent, Moran, Runci, Medcalf, Frush & Petty.
