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:

Appropriate for today. 'All Soul's Day in the Cemetery' by Ludwig Friedrich Wilhelm Riefstahl [img]http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k216/ruthbale/WCRJG00Z.jpg[/img]

Beautiful! in a way it reminds me of this picture. A bit more modern but the same feeling

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.
