"A Couple Embracing in an Artist's Studio," Eugène Louis Lami, 1881. Watercolor over traces of black chalk, with touches of white gouache.

"Dr Johnson (1709–1784), and Mrs Siddons (1755–1831), in Bolt Court", 1887, by William Powell Frith (British, 1819-1909). The celebrated actress Sarah Siddons specialised in tragic roles, which helped her maintain a dignity and good reputation. She met writer, critic and wit Samuel Johnson near the end of his life and the episode was the inspiration for this painting by Frith.
