During a work visit to Munich last week I visited the Nymphenburg Castle .
I wanted to see Ludwigs Gallery of Beauties.

Joseph Stieler was commissioned by the king to paint this famous series of beautiful women, women from all classes of society,( 1827-1850).

Interesting exhibition at Akinci Gallery Amsterdam

These sculptures by Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez are from her new series Frauleins.
Vases with a variety of historical styles and decorative patterns on top of each other.
The black colour gives them a universal view. These neutral monolytes  reveal a stripe of untreated porcelain a -Newmanzip- wich seems to divide the object with a sedimentary timeline.
From the exhibition 'Le Cercle Infernal ' till march 20 ,2010
At the Akinci gallery Lijnbaansgracht 317 Amsterdam

Elsa Schiaparelli

Years ago I saw a show of Elsa Schiaparelli in Paris.

Today I am working on a project and keep thinking of her,
she is such a great inspiration.
