In looking at some of these lovely works, it begs the question; has there
been Rufian Art though-out history?  Alright, we deem this highly unlikely,
but here we've gathered a collection of beautiful paintings and mosaics
that seem carry with them the touch of something Sewell.

Paintings By Mary Cassatt
(1844-1926)  The daughter of an affluent Pittsburgh businessman, whose French ancestry had endowed him with a passion for that country, she studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and then traveled extensively in Europe, finally settling in Paris in 1874.   In that year she had a work accepted at
the Salon and in 1877 made the acquaintance of Degas, another painter with whom she was to be on close terms throughout her life.   His art and ideas had a considerable influence on her own work; he introduced her to impressionism and
she participated in the exhibitions of 1879, 1880, 1881 and 1886, refusing to do so in 1882 when
Degas did not.

Engravings By Albrecht Dürer
(1471-1528)  A painter and printmaker generally regarded as one of the greatest of German renaissance artists. His vast body of work includes altarpieces and religious works, numerous portraits and self-portraits, and copper engravings.  Here we have details from his engravings The Angel Pit and Melencolia.
