Take a look at Adelaide Labille-Guiard's Self-portrait with Two Students, 1785.
The painting by simply Labille-Guiard is a portrait of her and her two pupils. The portraitist applied oil since her medium is on canvas.
Primary of this painting is definitely not her pupils but herself, with the amount of emphasis she places after herself. Her attire and accessories is a huge contrast get back of her pupils. The focal point of this painting is the well-dress and feminine artist, who will be donning a elaborate light blue outfit while the pupils' garb only blend into the backdrop with a identical colour selection. The light shown on her outfit that her dress may perhaps be made of a better quality materials, like silk or cotton, compared to her pupils.
Dark areas that fell on her pupils face show the light source comes from the direction with the pupils' kept (the proper side of the painting) where there could be a windows. The vanishing line reaches where the elaborate hat is placed to enhance the emphasis on the wonder. In the background rest several figurines, including the bust line of the father. The bust of the specialist father is known as a darker tone due to staying in the background, concealed from the light source. That should also be the greatest point of the painting.
The pupils look like smaller than the artist due to the fact that they are in fact behind her, as portrayed by the art work. The students are partially covered by the artist who is seated around the emerald green chair. The painting displays great amount of detail, which range from the folds up of the dresses to the wood's texture. The artist uses fine brushstrokes for the exquisite details of the easel, flooring, chair, stool as well as the walls.
