I love the sweetness of the ladies faces. He captured a connection between the housekeeper and the sisters and the charity.

I looked up the artist and am having a great appreciation for the Spanish Artist.

I love Jose Benlliure y Gil's mass paintings that you posted earlier. And here is a lovely mantilla for you Dymphna: http://www.museumsyndicate.com/images/4/33069.jpg I like the daisies in her lap.

And the toddler in the left hand corner here and her little pout: http://www.museumsyndicate.com/item.php?item=33058

Thanks Lola, these were both gorgeous.

Nuns or tertiaries?

Would really cloistered nuns really be walking streets to do that?
