Girl reading (1919). Simon Willem Maris (Dutch, 1873-1935). Oil on canvas. Simonis and Buunk, Ede, Netherlands.
Maris was a pupil of his father, Willem Maris, and academies in The Hague and Antwerp. Made study trips to France and Italy. Maris painted in an impressionist style both figures and portraits. His painting style is reminiscent of Albert Roelofs.

The Cello Player. Robert Sivell (Scottish, 1888-1958). Oil on panel. Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museums.
As with The Cello Player, Sivell did many portraits or studies of people, which he seems to have preferred over landscape painting. His works are very lifelike, but he generally used a rather dark palette, and some are brooding and austere.

Fish Amulet / Egypt / 1800 BCE Ancient Egyptians called fish amulets like this nekhau and gave them to young girls to wear as a charm against drowning. Some scholars suggest that such amulets functioned by aversion, that is, a reminder of a watery environment was enough to give the owner security, but it is much more likely that the amulet allowed the wearer to acquire the abilities of a fish, and therefore survival, if she happened to fall into the water.
