47. We had Putti all over our house when my daughter was little...

the one playing the lute, a Fiorentino; Raphael's little pair; the Bouguereau of Psyche and Cupid. My favorite is hanging right here in a hallway now and I don't even know if it's a classic or not, but we fought over whether she could take it when she left home almost two decades ago...a strikingly beautiful face, with arms clutching chest, both hands on shoulders (I think it represents my girl, to me, which is why I wouldn't let her have it).

My own big brother did similar for me, after he went away to college and actually got to study art. Over the years, he gifted me with many history of art books, print books, studies of various artists that I took a liking to, and oh so many pictures. Most of those are in storage, as I'm cramped for space here, but I've dug out my old copy of "100 of the World's Most Beautiful Paintings" a while back (he gave me that after I was in high school), just to try and figure where I'd seen one of your challenges.
