Spectacular & strong Spanish women portrayed in 19C & early 20C


The air is a little chilly today.   I have been inside, & trying to recreate warmth.  My mind wandered back to Spain, where the heat never seemed to touch the glorious Spanish women.  I wilted there. Artists seem to have a special reverence & fascination with the exotic constancy of Spanish women.
