These fellows look suspiciously similar. I'm thinking this is the same guy just posing as religious.
Rembrandt did this with his son Titus.

I am finding several paintings where either a daughter or other lady posed as a nun. Good eye to catch that... :detective:

I'm over the moon seeing all these paintings! I had seen only one of them before. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have them as postcards that you could keep in a box in a cabinet in the novitiate so that you could take them out and "go visiting" with them once in a while!

This reminds me so much of the old part of the basillica in Ars where St. John Mary Vianney spent so many hours reconciling sinners to God.

I wish I could upload the pictures of the paintings of the crowned nuns I have, but I'm pretty much a slug when it comes to that kind of stuff. Any helpful hints?
