Lady at the Tea Table by Mary Cassatt, 1883:
It is a slideshow in honor of Victor Hugo’s completion of Les Misérables, which he accomplished on this day in 1862.
‘Tis raining in my neighborhood, and I only wish I owned such stylish wet-weather garb. Please accept this cutesy image as a peace-offering for my recent absence…
…but I’ve been (furiously) working on Reel Infatuation Blogathon content. Can you believe it’s almost here?
We hope you’ll join us this weekend for all of your character crush needs!
Vernon Lee (Violet Paget) by John Singer Sargent, 1889:
Woman Reading by Peter Ilsted, circa 1905:
A few months back there was a Black Mountain College exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts. I bought this pennant from their gift shop on Wednesday (50% off!).
A few weeks ago, I posted about the Carmen Herrera documentary The 100 Years Show (2015). She is one of my favorite artists, and the short film is an inspiring look at the woman and her work.
As luck would have it, there’s an amazing Carmen Herrera exhibition running at the Wexner Center for the Arts. On Wednesday, my mom joined me for a tour of the show. Here are a few images from Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight.
Her precision makes me giddy.
The exhibition runs through 16 April.
