    The “mistress” looks very much like both dad and mom in this picture. Look at the faces.

    Well if he DIDN’T take a mistress he would be involved with other ‘self’ endeavors (wife looks like a transgender !)

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here (former image), or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry. It is actually a detail image (left side chopped off) of the full painting.

    Self-portrait with daughters Henriette Royard and Marie de Rège in front of the easel is shown, with a different coloration image, by a current-location digital catalog partner page (Google translation messes with names; Bing translation changes Marie’s name and loses Zoom feature).

    Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image (of the full painting) can be found here. Another coloration image of it can be found here (I like that title: The Artist at Work with his Two Daughters better).

    Another, perhaps crisper coloration image, of this detail image, can be found here. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated French Wikipedia page has more) and collection (more under Subcategories.

    Second (first actually by him), of the 2 works, attributed to this artist by Mr. Melcher, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    P.S. The bold-face in the title is my addition.

    Really Melcher, sometimes I want to scream!! — a man, when maybe 71, didn’t know he only had 3 more years, but still …, paints a portrait with his daughters, probably to commemorate some occasion, and you say Caravaggio was a jerk?? — look in a mirror to see one.

    Perhaps I’ve been doing this too long and it’s starting to show.
