  • The gentleman hunter is wearing a white (silk?) cravat...how nice is that?

  • In this painting and Marriage a la Mode 6 (Hogarth) from two days ago, the ribs of the dogs are clearly seen. In the latter the dog looks more emaciated, but it caught my attention when I first looked at the image, and in the former the dog seems less emaciated, but ribs are still visible. It may merely be the painters' attempts at capturing detail, but I find it interesting.

    Lady in blue appears to have a cape on her dress.

    Lady in blue also appears to have her right hand resting on a book.

    I thought this was meant to be a painting of the trio outside; it's not. There is a small wooden wall next to the lady in blue. The group is posed in front of a mural. And I wonder - why a dead bird in a family portrait?

    There is a thatched roof hut in the left background.
