  1. I always enjoy these posts. Could you also provide some biographical information about the artists as well? I’d also like to know where these paintings are so I can see them in person. Thank you.

    Usually if you Google, you will find a Wikipedia article if the artist is well-known. If not, then he or she may have a personal web site, or a page on an art gallery’s site, with some biographical material.

    You have to dig a bit deeper, though, to find that what Suzay listed as “A Gallant Figure” is actually named “Caught!” An understandable mixup since apparently the two works have been auctioned as a package deal in the past; I found a couple of references like this one listing both together:

    “Caught!” is the perfect title for the painting shown here. 🙂
