Description

Lizzie Perrotte and Colin Wiggins compare portraits by two nineteenth century rivals. One is Eugene Delacroix’s painting Louis-Auguste Schwiter; the second is Madame Moitessier by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. One is beautiful, fashionable and sensitive, the other is ‘stately as a galleon’. But who will win?
