Challenge 86 - Sir Joshua Reynolds

The challenge this time is the art of the Georgian painter Sir Joshua Reynolds. His beautiful attention to detail on the gowns of some of the ladies he painted look almost real.

Sir Joshua Reynolds (July 16, 1723 – February 23, 1792) was the most important and influential of eighteenth-century English painters, specialising in portraits and promoting the "Grand Style" in painting which depended on idealization of the imperfect. He was one of the founders and first President of the Royal Academy. George III appreciated his merits and knighted him in 1769.

I am going to make the time for this challenge three weeks for you to submit entries, with Easter coming up I am sure people will be busy, so entries for this challenge are due by Tuesday April 13th Midnight EST

There is a huge Joshua Reynolds pic spam under the cut, lol. I have only used ladies and children because they were the prettiest, but you can find images of men he painted and use them if you like.
