…for taking a bunch of quick lil’ photos of my new and some old Minis. I’ve been hunting down Robecca and Twyla for a good while and finally got them both. Although I only collect the Original Ghouls, Ragdoll Frankie had to be part of my Christmas decoration. I also decided to get Pattern Skelita, because she’s a better match with my costumized normal sized Skelita. Plus: Toralei. She. Is. Gorgeous. (>^u^
Summer Picnic (1919). Theresa Bernstein (American, 1890-2002). Oil on canvas. Martin and Edith Stein Collection.
Summer Picnic depicts the artist herself, open book in hand, sitting outdoors in a voluminous white robe that’s falling off her naked shoulder and a bare-chested man holding an apple. A saccharine yet loving fusion of Cézanne and Renoir, this pastoral idyll celebrates Bernstein’s marriage to the painter and printmaker William Meyerowitz.
