It’s #FashionFriday and we’re exploring classical connections in the exhibition “Icons of Style” at the Getty Center! In this photograph, a 1932 advertisement for Bonwit Teller knitwear, a nude female bound in yarn stands in a classical pose, her upraised arm hiding her face. The composition may allude to the mythical Ariadne, a princess of Crete who helped the Greek hero Theseus escape the Minotaur’s labyrinth by leaving a trail of wool thread. This photograph, with its classical references, unusual scale, and dreamlike quality, suggests the influence of Surrealist art. The seemingly-life-size nude figure is in fact a three-foot tall wooden statue. The photographer, Anton Bruehl, uses dramatic lighting and close cropping to make this inanimate model seem lifelike.
See this photograph and others that explore the evolution of fashion photography in “Icons of Style: A Century of Fashion Photography, 1911–2011” at the Getty Center @gettymuseum on view through this Sunday, October 21st.

Exciting new work in the gallery! ‘Graft’ 2018, watercolor and ink on paper. 54” x 64” By artist Irina Alimanestianu, “When making Graft I decided to draw a loose grid first. Like a skeleton or scaffolding and then begin painting on that structure. My thought was that nature, plants, evolution look random but despite that they evolve precisely with their own logic. Among other things, I was thinking about how plants grow around rocks, up walls. About how seaweed and micro organisms interact and influence each other. “ @irinaalimanestianu #evolution #nature #connectivity #femaleartist #painter

Finding balance. Often easier said than done! Also, trying to find the most perfect creamy white for our bedroom walls, much like the stone color here from 1300 years ago... We’re not doing plaster work, so your favorite white/creamy hue? Farrow & Ball? Pointing? Wevet? Benjamin Moore?  #findingbalance #theperfectcolor #whitepaint #bedroomdecor #patina

As a kid in the 80’s interested in interiors and design my mom would always show me the magical rooms of Mario Buatta, a fellow Staten Islander. Flash forward to the late 90’s and I was selling him antiques! The stars had aligned. We later realized my Great Uncle was his school principal and laughed as he recalled that my Uncle told him he’d have an amazing career ahead of him in the arts! Thank you for your inspiring interiors, knowledge and passion for the decorative arts and your wicked wit! There won’t be another like you! 🙏 #rip #mariobuatta #princeofchintz #iconic #interiordesign #antique #theworldofinteriors
