Unexpected highlight of recent trip to Paris, January 2018.
Love the masculine/feminine play of this Edward Steichen shot from 1927. This was the equivalent of a sportswear article back in the day…
“Mimosa” by Bonnard. The more I see by this artist, the more I like him. It’s not a coincidence that I stole the Tate Bonnard catalogue from my parents’.
Still loving these colours, patterns, mixes from the Evening Standard feature of Martina Mondadori recently.
A taster for the Royal Academy’s exhibition this spring on Charles I and his art collection, where I’ll be hoping for more Van Dykes like this one. Thank you Becca for flagging it up to me.
How beautiful is this statue from the antique collection at the Rodin Museum? Rodin collected Greek, Roman and Egyptian art for over 20 years and left it to the French state as part of his own works’ bequest.
For those of you with PLANS tonight, might I recommend this Jean Desses dress from 1956 and a few little jewels. I think a diamond and gold pine cone could go in the handbag, couldn’t it?
For my mum, ALL the Desgas horses in the Musee d’Orsay.
Paris, January 2018.
bursting with life – this illuminated manuscript is so exuberant! Beautiful…
