Monsieur de Pompadour by Eves-Rib Monsieur de Pompadour by Eves-Rib
Jean-Antoine Poisson, Marquis de Pompadour, was the consort of Queen Louise XIV of France from 1745 to 1750. Beautiful and refined, he was accomplished in dancing, singing, painting and other charming masculine arts. The Queen spotted him at a masked ball and at once took him for her lover.

Digital painting, mostly after François Boucher.

I love the idea and admire the artistry that went into the sumptuous gown and pillows. The face and hands are up to your usual high standard  and the jewelry is a little touch that adds a lot.  I'm sure that level of detail took some work,but it was worth it.  I question only  his hair, hich seems  very plain compared to the rest of him. Also I miss the visible Adam's apple which you use to great effect in other works to underline the subjects' maleness

All in all,there's much here to love

It didn't actually take that much work - as I say, it's mostly after Boucher, i.e. a reworking of someone else's original painting. That's why it's listed as a 'Photomanipulation'. My main contribution is to substitute a man's head. The hair is the woman's from the original, as is the choker concealing any adam's apple.
