A 19th century couple

This is one of my favorite 19th century portraits, an unknown couple. Just look at the expression on the woman's face! She is clearly sick of the whole business of sitting for a portrait.

This was one of my biggest cleanup jobs yet - I've been working on it sporadically for months. Below is the version I was working from, a real mess. Clearly I could have spent more time working on it, but I've had enough!
