The Bride is Embellished by her Girl Friend

Well, that is how it loosely translates is what I'm guessing. This painting is in the Danish National Gallery, painted in 1859.

I just love this painting! If you look closely, both of their dresses are in perfect detail, down to which direction the pleats in the skirt go (if you need a larger image, here is where I first saw it). I also love how the bride's dress isn't perfectly smooth, but they are those kinds of wrinkes (the one's left over from when it was on the bolt that refuse to come out).
