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.
dart.fine-art.com louis icart
i love the way women were portrayed as such playful minxes!
ok i’m off to entertain, have fun tonite!
or maybe was louis’ lust FOR the ladies
hi guys! i was so happy you’re so into LC too that i was inspired to do another post on his work.
as much as he was peaches and cream
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
especially for a generation who were shocked at an exposed ankle
not to mention a glimpse of stocking
sometimes the paintings are almost dark
but they’re always playful
but these ladies weren’t playing
when it came to love and seduction (i actually have the one above signed and framed on consignment in ny. if you like it let me know)
his body of work is endless!
he did it all,
whether it’s the weather,
or just plain capturing glimpses of beauty,
there’s always a new one to discover
well i better go, stay cozy and have a great weekend! i’m gonna sequester myself cause my new web boutique is going up next week and so i have a lot to dot and cross! xoc
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,
and anyone who loves dogs, well…
he painted women so delicately but still kept them strong
i have tons more so if you like him too let me know and i’ll finish up that folder tomorrow!
for tonight, stay dreamy
don’t work too hard
and enjoy your friends in person or on their blogs! love you!! xoc
