Vermeers Lady in Blue, hanging in the Rijksmuseum. 
Compare the detail with the x-ray. On the x-ray the back side of her pajama flares out even wider. I think Vermeer knew about the taboo about showing pregnancy in art and toned it down. 
What do you think?

In the Van Gogh Still Life with Absinthe, he is illustrating how it is meant to be consumed. It should be diluted with water like Anisette. 
Van Gogh often met other Impressionists in cafes to talk about life and art. Absinthe was terrible for their health, poisonous after a while as it attacked brain tissue. 
Visit this painting with me in the Van Gogh Museum, in Amsterdam.
