What are some of your favorite portraits*, the ones you would love to recreate if time, money, and skill were no object--or the ones you have recreated, or are working on recreating right now?

*Or extant garments. :)

Do you have a favorite site for browsing portraits or other period artwork?

Some of my dream clothes, with images, all 14th-16th century Europe this time - LONG )

Mostly I browse Wikimedia Commons for portraits and art, although it can be overwhelming. It has the advantage of having stuff from a lot of different countries and times. Tudor and Elizabethan Portraits is pretty good for 16th century (and not all English), although much less comprehensive.

Post your favorites in the comments--images or links--and tell us why you love them!
