how i love to play detective. when i first saw the vallotton painting i thought i recognized the print on the wall. finally dug it up, it's by his compatriot, vuillard. i looked too at a similar print (the name of the painter of which i will fill in when i remember it!), but then i was so excited when i remembered which one it was.
the next one, i knew what it was imme- diately, but it took me a while to find it online. it's so cool when artists highlight other artists.
willcox does it again with william nicholson's book. (okay, i changed the cover to red, but why not?)
artists also fea- ture them- selves! willcox fea- tures an image from the book on the cover.
and manuel robbe has a woman perusing another of his own prints.
but what gives me a cool chill is knowing two of my favorite artists, at different times, sat in the exact same spot, and were each moved to paint it.
and this last is just a hoot: which came first, the poster mocking the women or the women mocking the poster?
oh silly me -- the poster is in the photo!
