Lee Krassner

Reflection of the day

postmodernism? Wouldn't we be better off with a re-rennaissance?

Did you know...

... that there is an Old Master known as "the Master of the female half-lengths"?
Presumably from the Netherlands, first half of the XVI century.


The artist alone sees spirits. But after he has told of their appearing to him, everybody sees them.

Ancient tapestries

Is it just me, or these are fascinating. I'm so glad that my small camera managed to capture the colours of these.

I love the patterns in skirts and dresses from the Spanish shop Desigual
