There are two paintings here and they couldn’t be more different. The modern one called Evelyn is by a self-taught female artist from Britain and the second one Bethsheba  is by Rembrandt, a depiction OF the legend of the Bible story using  his blonde mistress, a Rubenesque beauty  who died young, as a sitter. Both these works of art are united by a common theme – breast cancer. The Louvre painting is surrounded by speculation that the sitter may have had cancer without knowing it. THE APPEARANCE OF HER BREAST MADE AN ITALIAN DOCTOR IN 1967 CLAIM THAT SHE MAY HAVE HAD Breast Cancer. FOUR YEARS AGO THE PAINTINGS FORMED PART OF AN EXHIBITION AT THE LOUVRE TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THIS OLD UNIVERSAL DISEASE.AND THE NEED FOR PREVENTION OR EARLY DETECTION. NOTE THE HAPPY EXPRESSION ON THE SITTER’s Face in the painting Evelyn.
