Study for Mercury by Isidore Pils (1813-1875) 

Mercury looking towards the past is a non-astrological way to illustrate Mercury in retrograde; I like  Isidore Pils (1813-1875) rendition far more…
Isidore-Alexandre-Augustin Pils was a French painter, born in Paris the son of a soldier.  At the age of twelve, he studied with Guillaume Guillon-Lethière for four years, then with François-Édouard Picot.
By 1840 he’d been admitted to the École des Beaux-Arts and was competing for the Prix de Rome, which he won in 1841 for a history painting, St. Peter Healing a Lame Man at the Door of the Temple.  Although in poor health, Pils then spent the customary three years at the French Academy in Rome at the Villa Medici, which then had Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres as its director. While in Italy he visited Naples, Venice, and Florence.  Pils, in 1849 he completed his most famous work, Rouget de L’Isle Singing La Marseillaise. He later produced many military scenes during the siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870.
Pils was appointed professor of painting at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1863 but left the same year for two years in Algeria. In 1868 he was elected to the seat #14 of the Académie des Beaux-Arts. Among his students were Adrien Moreau, Paul Adolphe Rajon, Julien Dupré, Luc-Olivier Merson, Édouard Joseph Dantan and László Mednyánszky.
Among his other work, Pils painted part of the ceiling of the grand staircase of the Palais Garnier, in four panels titled “The Gods of Olympus”, “Apollo in His Chariot”, “Triumph of Harmony”, and “Apotheosis of the Opera”, completed the year of his death. The following year he was the subject of a biography by Louis Becq de Fouquières.

Artist’s Wife with a Boy at a Table (1921). Zbigniew Pronaszko (Polish, 1885-1958). Oil on canvas. National Museum, Cracow.
His work showed a synthesis of colors, limiting the palette to the wealth of shades of pink, purple, and red while imposing broad strokes. He was a co-founder of the Polish Formalists.

Claude Monet - Camille Monet in the Garden at Argenteuil [1873] on Flickr.
Monet’s art depends on observation of his environment, and to that extent it is always autobiographical. In his pictures, one can chart the seasons, the weather, or as here, the look of women’s fashion in 1873. Monet’s wife, Camille Doncieux, is as easily recognisable as are the mounds of geraniums in the garden of the couple’s rented house in Argenteuil.  This painting is the most enigmatic of Monet’s rare genre pictures. Numerous interpretations have been offered, yet nothing has been found in the literature or theatre of Monet’s time that corresponds to this scene. The most telling clue may be biographical: the death of Camille’s father in September 1873. Camille was an impassive model, but here she telegraphs sadness, while holding a note in her gloved hand. Later, Monet identified the gentleman as a neighbour - perhaps one who had called to offer his condolences and a consoling bouquet.
