Young lady at her toilette (1840). Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (Austrian, 1793–1865). Oil on panel. Wien Museum Karlsplatz. 
One of the leading Austrian painters of the Biedermeier period. He studied at the Vienna Academy. He copied pictures of old masters, and painted portraits, genre subjects, and still-life, but is perhaps best known for his landscapes. He was second to none in depicting nature in delicate colours. His many genre-pictures are also significant.

Jane Horley (1795–1824). Rolinda Sharples (English, 1793–1838). Oil on wood. Royal West of England Academy.
Sharples was born into a family of professional artists with a modest income from property and capital investments. She had little social contact with her fellow Bristol artists perhaps as much because of her social status as her gender. Her formal training was limited to a series of lessons from Philip Reinagle in London in 1814 and 1820.
