Another Ingres widget online

Back in February I blogged about the Ingres widget available on the Morgan Library web site - well lo and behold, the Metropolitan Museum of art has one too. And they have a much bigger Ingres collection. Check out this close up of Ingres' portrait of Jean-Joseph Fournier.

 This is just about the actual size of the original.

But you'll want to see the whole thing to enjoy this guy's Regency/Empire period clothing. Oh lah lah!

I must get back to the Met very soon.
