Portraits From Two Periods
- Students look at clothing, hairstyles, background, and other clues
in Southern Belle, a work by the 19th-century German artist

and its subject.
- Examining Head of a Negro by Peter Paul Rubens, students
speculate about the strong emotions expressed in the eyes and other
features of the 17th-century subject.
