something new everyday

hi guys, happy saturday nuit~

i’m not sure where this top painting came from, do you know it? i’m the worst at saving hyperkinks!

i have guests so i’m only here for a sec, but wanted to post some of the art  i stumbled on and saved to my desktop while i could still make sense of it. actually there is no sense to it, it’s just a random smattering of the tip of the iceberg that is the 1920s.

ever since seeing midnight in paris, i’ve been thinking about who i’d like to run into from the 20s. (other than josephine baker and chanel).  but looking into it i’m blown away by how many designers, illustrators and artists i don’t know.

he also had another side one that was fascinated by the mysteries and sensual charms of of women

striking risque poses

and wearing whisper thin dresses

without a care in the world, especially the dangers of smoking =p

he painted an age of folly and it was a new and exciting time

aaw

especially for a generation who were shocked at an exposed ankle

hi friends! i know it’s pretty cold for so many right now so i hope you’re tucked in warm and cozy tonite!

yesterday i started cleaning off my desktop and was happy to see you enjoyed it. today i started working on some of the folders. so many of the images aren’t hi res so they can’t go to print. soooo the next best thing is to share them with you! i wish i could figure out how to get them to blow up when you click but it seems like wordpress may have changed that feature.

so tonite it’s louis icart, one of my favorite artists. he captured moments of contemplation,
