A Bit of Lavender and Violet. 19th and Early 20th Century Paintings Of Women

Hi everyone! Welcome to one and all.
The beautiful paintings by Frank W. Benson and  Hamilton  Hamilton were my inspiration for today's theme.   Pictures of woman dressed in many different shades and hues of purple.
.  During my search for additional art work I discovered several artists that were new to me. Paintings by all of them will be in future posts for sure. Many more treasures to share! 
Your comments are most welcome. I read and appreciate everyone of them.
Remember to create something beautiful today!
Much Love as always, Louise

So glad I found your blog, and especially this post! I've been looking for the artist of the portrait "Windswept". Saw that image used on a book cover, and have been in love with it for a while. Thank you!
