Renowned as one of the most brilliant keyboard players of her time, Anne Louise Brillon de Jouy sat for one of Fragonard’s portraits. She was also a composer herself. She became a close friend of Benjamin Franklin and composed a march to celebrate the American victory in the Revolutionary War. Stopping by the Gallery this weekend? Today and tomorrow at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm, the Living Art Collective Ensemble (LACE) will perform salon style concerts with music by Boccherini, Mozart, and Brillon.

This painting depicts a couple shopping for a wedding ring. The panel attests to Netherlandish artists’ keen interest in pictorial illusionism and meticulous attention to detail, especially in the luminous jeweled, glass, and metallic objects—secular and ecclesiastic trade wares that are examples of the goldsmith's virtuosity. http://met.org/2g0xay4 Featured Artwork of the Day: Petrus Christus (Netherlandish active by 1444–died 1475/76) | A Goldsmith in his Shop | 1449
