Eugene de Blaas, (24 July 1843 – 10 February 1932), was an Italian painter in the school known as Academic Classicism. He was born at Albano, near Rome, to Austrian parents. His father Karl, also a painter, was his teacher. The family moved to Venice when Karl became Professor at the Academy of Venice. He often painted scenes in Venice, but also portraits and religious paintings.

His colorful and rather theatrical period images of Venetian society, e.g. On the Balcony (1877; Private Collection), were quite different compared to delicate pastels and etchings of the courtyards, balcony and canals of modern Venice.

Eugene de Blaas’ paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy, Fine Art Society, New Gallery and Arthur Tooth and Sons Gallery in London, and also at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. More on Eugene de Blaas

Lavinia Fontana, Mars and Venus 01 Painting, The amorous game, Part 64 – With Footnotes

In a bedroom a man and a young woman pose as Mars and Venus. She is completely naked and looks back: she stares at us and hands us a narcissus flower. He has only his helmet on his head and a drape covers his private parts: he looks at her and, almost frightened, puts his hand on her bottom. More on this painting

The Roman myth of Venus and Mars is of Venus, the Goddess of Love having a passionate affair with Mars, the God of War.

Lavinia Fontana (August 24, 1552 – August 11, 1614) was a Bolognese Mannerist painter best known for her portraiture. She was trained by her father Prospero Fontana and was active in Bologna and Rome. She is regarded as the first female career artist in Western Europe as she relied on commissions for her income. Her family relied on her career as a painter, and her husband served as her agent and raised their eleven children. She was perhaps the first woman artist to paint female nudes.

Fontana and her family moved to Rome in 1603 at the invitation of Pope Clement VIII. She gained the patronage of the Buoncompagni, of which Pope Gregory XIII was a member. She was subsequently appointed as Portraitist in Ordinary at the Vatican. Lavinia thrived in Rome as she had in Bologna and Pope Paul V himself was among her sitters. She was the recipient of numerous honors.

She was elected into the Accademia di San Luca of Rome. She died in the city on August 11, 1614 and was subsequently buried at Santa Maria sopra Minerva. More on Lavinia Fontana

Giuseppe Aureli (December 5, 1858 in Rome – 1929) was an Italian painter and watercolourist. His work is noted for its historical subject matter, portraits of Italian noble families as well as genre paintings and local scenes, especially work with Oriental themes.

Giuseppe Aureli was born in Rome in 1858. He received his early art education at the Academia de San Luca. He exhibited in various exhibitions; including: The International Exhibition of 1888 in Munich and the World Fair of 1893 in Chicago, but his Oriental works were rarely included in these early exhibitions. Having his workshop in Rome, Aureli was in a position to exchange ideas with the most prolific Orientalist artists at that the time. With those influences, Aureli began painting more works with Oriental subject matter such as harem scenes and exotic beauties. He died in 1929 in Anzio. More on Giuseppe Aureli
