And Just For Something Different…

Art and fashion often intersect and below is just one example. This interesting painting is a watercolor done by Marie Bracquemond in 1880. Relatively unknown today, Marie Bracquemond was one of a handful of female impressionist painters during the late 19th Century and was referred to as one of the les trois grandes dames ( along with Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot). Basically, it was the aesthetics that caught our eye along with the model’s classic Mid-Bustle Era lines. 🙂
