Painted Portraits Of Girls
This is a very interesting set of about 137 paintings from Wikipedia Commons.  The older I get, the more attracted I am to portraiture painting, and girls have always been a favorite subject matter of mine and artists throughout history.

Here are my favorites in chronological order to emphasize the change in art history.
