No, you're not seeing double . . . or quadruple. And yes, I'm stuck in 19th Century mode today.

Our Friday art lesson is literally about art lessons, only with a twist this time.  I recently came across a large collection of 1870's French academic drawings and some of them showed two (or more) artists' take on the same model in the same session.  On the old tumblr blog, I posted several photos and even a painting or two of such sessions, but these are the first actual output from them that I can document, so I made these side by side composites to show them off.  We start with two 1876 renditions of a seated model by Coquelett (left) and Goldstein.
