1. I find that the girl looks a lot like me, minus the coloring and and dramatic eyebrows. So, she is kind of pretty in a fat-faced kind of way. She
    looks in her eyes a bit too young to be presented in this way.
2. Fashion-wise, perhaps the 1840s?
3. Girl - age 16; guy - age 30
4. Guy looks like his right eye is turned inward a bit, I'm thinking due to the fact that he is peering into such a narrow opening.
5. Agree, guy looks like a tool, leering in where the girl expects privacy.
6. The girl looks like she is thinking, "What a douche, but some men are like this, so I am a bit amused."
     The guy looks kind of desperate.
7. If I were the guy, I would not peer into her door because I would want to be respectful. I would immediately dump the guy if I were the girl.
8. If I saw a young girl dressed like that, I would tell her that she is beautiful, but ask her if she wants to be viewed primarily as sexual in this
     situation and if not, to consider putting on a wrap.
9.  I like the painting because the facial expressions and placement of the subjects provoke a lot of inferences on the part of the viewer.
10. If I were the guy's best friend I would tell him that what he was doing is very uncool.
10.

Jolly good. Everybody who answers agrees with 5th question: the guy looks like tool. It's "Date" by K. Makovsky, Year: 1866. Brother V. Makovsky painter as well.

Does this artist do a lot of painting of this type (in which the human subjects are rich with psycho-social possibilities)? I could use this and similar paintings in my social studies class to introduce certain topics/elicit discussion. A few years ago, I was in a pizzeria with my three sons, then in their early twenties. Above us was a photograph from around the 1940s, looked like southern Italy or Sicily. A young woman was walking on the street by a half-dozen or so men of all ages. What at first looked so innocent was chilling when one looked at the faces, especially eyes, of the subject.s . I was so proud of one son who pointed it  out to me . The other two agreed that it was "rapey" an wondered if the proprietor had this in mind or just never noticed the look of suppressed  terror in the woman's eyes, the look of unabashed "you're a thing" in the eyes of the men.

This painter's work is big & diverse but usually things I see by Makovsky is rich/ well-known figures' portraits. It's fun to study pictures. You've got well-bred sons. Check book thread, answered cool questions you raised.

OK! What is your favorite dessert? I have to cheat and claim two.

One is Strawberry Shortcake made with real shortcake, hot and fresh out of the oven. (Too many people in the US just put berries on white cake and pretend it's strawberry shortcake, but they lie. Those Welsh and Scottish ladies know how to do it right.) My mom used to make it in the summer when there were ripe berries in our backyard. Cut them up, add some sugar. Put the berries and liquid that forms with the sugar on the cake and let the liquid soak in for a minute or two. Top with whipped heavy cream and eat until you can't move.

Dessert #2: Key Lime Pie made the easy way, with a bottle of key lime juice (found, I think, only in the Florida Keys, islands off of the southern coast of Florida.) Whip up with eggs and sweetened condensed milk, add a bit of the zest of a lime by grating the green part of the peel. Pour into graham cracker crust, which is just as good purchased pre-made at the store. Bake, cool, then glob on either meringue or whipped cream. Dear God, the taste and textures are so tantalizing that it is difficult to stop eating. Making matters worse, it never makes one feel full.

Now, top this!!!!!!

To tell the truth, favoring foods doesn't make sense. Even candies & chocolate that me & many people like. Smb. who isn't blessed with good appetite will not answer favorite food question. F.ex. I.
Shall say few niceties towards people living in the world who may not realize, nor suspect they're really jolly good. Stupid as it may look like, since I didn't meet these people. Next!
