Old Master paintings of people with "character"

Check the paintings at this site.  They could give Rembrandt a run for his money.  I wish we could get some models like this at our studio sessions around town.  Don't get me wrong, the models we have are great and do a wonderful job.  And it's always a challenge to get younger people down in pencil/paint/whatever medium is being employed.  But what a challenge it would be to capture a face that has a distinct and mysterious history like these.
