As a painter I find these works impressive, in fact so much I wish to know their method of achievement, with every painter’s system unique.
Beautiful site, and impressive project, thank you for making this accessible.
Thank you for your kind message–it makes this “labour of love” infinitely worthwhile!

Thanks for your communications. I find Franz and Hermann Winterhalter paintings the same level as Hubert Drouais, Vigilius Eriksen, Rembrandt, and Baptist Lampi.
