portrait of the artist's wife (1936) by Bernard Boutet De Monvel (1881-1949), French -  one of the most celebrated painters of his day -  his palette was a few greys, a few earths and a lot of black; his illustration always dealt with in a flat tint and at a low angle so as to accentuate the monumental aspect; and most importantly, his line was refined to an extreme degree so the figure is reduced to the bare essentials (wiki - little augury)
