Classic. Painterly. Brilliant. This one had me at a glance. It reminds me of Renaissance portraits that are full of contrast yet have subtle goings-on in the almost black of the background. Ms. Williams top is quiet and subdued. We are compelled to see the face of this talented woman. Everything else is quiet and wondrous.
