Alexandre-Evariste Fragonard: Aretino in the Studio of Tintoretto. (bron: stair sainty)
"The source for the picture's subject is Carlo Ridolfi's book, Le Maraviglie dell'arte (1648). Aretino had spoken badly of Tintoretto. When they met one day Tintoretto invited Aretino to his studio to have his portrait done. During the sitting the painter suddenly pulled out a dagger from his robe. The surprised Aretino believed he was seeking revenge, and cried out and asked what he wanted. Tintoretto replied coldly, "Don't move. I am taking your measurements." Suitably intimidated by the incident, Aretino never again spoke badly of Tintoretto and they ultimately became friends. Bergeret's picture depicting Tintoretto brandishing a pistol, like those of his fellow artists Ingres and Alexander-Evariste Fragonard, differs from the account due apparently to a translator's confusion over the Italian word for dagger, 'pistolese.'"
Edgar Degas: James Jacques Joseph Tissot, ca. 1867–68. (collectie: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)
"The fashionable painter James Tissot was Degas’s friend and mentor in the 1860s and early 1870s. Posed in a studio, top hat and satin-lined cape by his side, Tissot is surrounded by canvases that reflect the wide-ranging tastes he shared with Degas.

“This was my rooftop studio at 90 Ludlow Street,” Sweeney says of this 2014 photo. “I moved out because they are building a 15-story luxury condo tower directly next door. One day I walked out the front door and saw a man taking a picture of his wife taking a picture of some fake graffiti. That was the moment when I decided to move. Now I am on 13th Street. The other day I was looking out the window and I saw an old man with a long, thick white beard, sunglasses and a black beret. I thought to myself, ‘That’s more like it.’’’ (bron: New York Times, foto: Peter Sieper)
