Image of the Day 

The National Gallery has an interesting bit on the sitter for one of my favorite portraits. They explore the life and career of Madame Pompadour inspired by her portrait working at a tambour frame. She obviously is using a tambour hook, but one usually associates this technique with the use of large hoops not a rectangular frame.
