The Japanese Fan:
was painted around 1865 by Gustave Léonard de Jonghe, a Belgian painter best known for his portraits, who died on January 28 in 1893. His career ended when he became blind in 1882.
You can see more of his work here, but I chose the one at the top of the post because I see a teapot on that table and found it suitable to share for T Stands for Tuesday. There's an article on his life and work here. Here's a slideshow of some of his paintings:
There's a peaceful feel to his work that I find calming. I offer it for you on this day if politics upsets you. Me? I'm looking forward to the State of the Uniom Address tonight! I'll be watching it on cable and posting my thoughts on Facebook and eating popcorn. I love politics.
