It is time for a change of pace until the weekend. Potpourri time for some JAMA covers featuring women. Two are portraits; "Ophelia" by Arthur Hughes (1832-1915), and "Young Woman With Ibis" by Edgar Degas (1834-1917) . The third is a Goya etching from the "Year of hunger" during the Napoleon wars in Spain. Its title translates to "They arrived too late". The explanatory pages follow each and can be made more legible by clicking on it and enlarging. Enjoy.
