KLIMT KICKS



I've just returned from loads of travel and it's snowing in New York.  The best thing I can think to wear is a pair of Gustav Klimt inspired knee highs to trudge through the slush.

Recaps on the way from my visits to Paris and Miami!

BONJOUR DE PARIS!


Bonjour de Paris!

Can you guess who I visited today?
La Joconde (AKA Mona Lisa) was first on my list when I arrived at Le Louvre this morning.
I spent all day in the grand museum and am fairly certain I could spend the rest of my life there.

More to come!

THE UNKNOWN PAINTING





I scooped this sweater at one of my favorite vintage outposts in the Village, instantly recognizing the image from Art History.  However, try as a might, I cannot identify this painting!  I've scoured the internet and sourcebooks and cannot uncover the title or artist of this work.

HELP!  Do you know this painting?

PICASSO LADIES





It's overdue, but here's my Halloween costume: Picasso's Girl Before a Mirror!

For the Annual Members Party at the New Museum, two friends and I decided to emulate Picasso's paintings of women.  Meri was Dora Maar, Kathy was Woman with a Book, and I was the stunning masterpiece pictured above (which hangs at the Museum of Modern Art).

We had a fantastic evening challenging partygoers to guess who we were, and a few actually recognized my painting!  

Thanks to Kathy for her help with painting and for my friends for being great sports.

Hope you had a magnificent Halloween!

HAPPY KAHLOWEEN!


Happy Kahloween from Artfully a Hare!


Edward the bunny has been dressed up in many a costume, but this may be my favorite so far.  Inspired by Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser from 1940 (and her signature look in general), Mr. Beast donned a flower crown and unibrow to complete the look.

PUFFY



Another one from MASS MoCA:  Lee Boroson's Plastic Fantastic.
Meant to evoke organic forms, the shapes in this installation are fabricated out of man-made materials, thereby collapsing the notion of a natural environment.  It reminded me of Tomas Saraceno's installation on the roof of the Met a few years ago, but it gave me a greater urger to hug the walls.

Same outfit, with an H&M mens' vest.
