A c. 1858-60 oil on canvas painting, The Bellelli Family, by Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French impressionist painter. Laura Belleli was the artist's aunt and the family lived in Florence which Degas visited in 1858. The painting is perhaps the artist's first great work and shows the obvious influence of Renaissance art. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
