Here we see Vermeers Lady in Blue, hanging in the RIJKS (Rijksmuseum) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 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?

Private Art Tours
A Mayor of Delft and his Daughter (1655) is the common name of the Jan Steen painting however since 2006 the name changed to: Double portrait of Adolf Croeser (1612-1668) and his daughter Catharina Croeser (1642-....).
In this stunning painting, you see the juxtaposition of extreme wealth and extreme poverty, and of Christian charity withheld on purpose. They do their best to ignore the beggar woman and the beggar boy, cap in hand.
