Lilian Westcott Hale, Alice (1925)

Lilian Westcott Hale enjoyed a national reputation for her portraits and domestic scenes, painted in a carefully drawn, politely impressionist style. Like Mary Cassatt and other female artists of her day, Hale devoted much of her attention to the sheltered world of women, especially girls. Alice (Sit-by-the-Fire) offers a moment of introspection, the silence accented by the soft lighting and muted tones of the artist’s palette. The artist also bathes the scene in warm nostalgia for a simpler time - note the colonial-period interior, which is actually the artist’s studio in Dedham, Massachusetts.

The Unequal Marriage" - a picture Russian painter by Vasily Pukirev.

The Unequal Marriage (1862), is a painting depicting the wedding ceremony of an elderly, high-ranking official and a young, visibly unhappy girl. This was one of the celebrated denunciatory pictures of the 1860s, revealing the unequal position of women and the corruption of bureaucracy. This critical mode, reflecting the general striving for reform in Russia after the Emancipation reform of 1861, was intended to arouse the dormant social conscience and change society. The Unequal Marriage is currently on display at the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Russia

Vasily Vladimirovich Pukirev (Russian painter, 1832 – 13 June 1890) was a Russian painter and illustrator. He is primarily known as the artist of the painting The Unequal Marriage. Vasily studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. He first worked as a portraitist but later turned to historical painting.
