Nothing you see belongs to me. If I ever find somerhing of mine that I could show off - I'll tell you. I love old things. I love fuzzy things. I love things that make me smile.

Elizabeth Reading (1897). Bessie MacNicol (Scottish, 1869-1904).
Favourite subjects were young girls painted en plein air against trees in dappled sunlight. She painted other works, in watercolour as well as in oil, that show her interest in fashions of the past. Her working life lasted only ten years, as she died in childbirth at the age of 34.

klejart:

This is one of my favourite drawings by Rembrandt van Rijn “A Woman and her Hairdressor” Pen and blister, with blister and India ink wash. What I like the most about this piece of art are the highlights, mid and dark shadows as well as transitional values. The dynamic compositions and strong contrasts of light and dark, perfectly synthesize the Baroque style of art. A trully remarkable piece of art not only on it’s own, but also when compared to other art of that era.
