The Campbell Sisters

Lorenzo Bartolini
The Campbell Sisters dancing a Waltz (1821-1822)


My quick retrospection to my favourite sculptures from Scottish National Gallery. Sulpture by Lorenzo Bartolini is the most important piece of Italian sculpture carved for a Scottish patron in the nineteenth century. The Capbell sisters – Emma and Julia showing marvelous artistic job by Bartolini, tip-toe poses, details of draperies are the best example of his craft. I absolutely fell in love with their graceful that comes from delicate ”moves” of marble sculpture… Please check out my all photos below, I focused on a divers perspectives, figures still dancing and talking… I’m sure that you’ll notice their dynamic around all visitors at the gallery 🙂

puffed sleevesWelcome all of you after my break blogging! Hope that New Year will brings to me more inspiration, time and energy for new creative posts 🙂 Today I want to show you my love for puff sleeves, I’m also a big fun of old school in fashion and designs from XX or XXI cetury. That’s why I want to present you unique fashion projects from XIX century to present times. The puff sleeve emerged in the Renaissance, but its popularity would ebb and flow even past the Edwardian age. The puff sleeves were either a short ¾ length or full length sleeves gathered at the top or bottom. The puffed sleeve was a hyper feminine style that would go through many transformations. But  How were the puffs achieved? The sleeves would be lined with stiffened fabric. I chose some examples which you’ll find below.

I like the scene in Anne Of Green Gables movie about puff sleeve – I’m a big fun of this humorous and poignant story, please watch my attachment below from movie directed by Kevin Sullivan. Second half of the XIXth century, Avonlea on Prince Edward Island (fictional town) and need to own spectacular puff sleeves 🙂 My version of puff sleeves is more subtle than example from Anne 😀 I’ve chosen beige suit and golden accesories. Below you will find also one of my favoruite modern projects like coat by Jean Charles de’ Castelbajac or top by Hardy Amies with puff sleeves motive.

Pora na fiolet, koszyk i trochę sztuki! Przybywam do Was z moją ostatnią miłością czyli vintage koszykiem z którym ostatnio w ogóle się rozstaje 🙂 Grubo pleciony w geometryczne wzory z ręcznie wykonanymi uchwytami z drewna to mój must have tego lata. Nigdy nie byłam wielką fanką fiołkowego fioletu, jednak w zestawieniu z jasnym koszykiem i butami w kolorze burgundu zaczęłam się powoli do niego przekonywać – kwestia dodatków zawsze potrafi namieszać! Poniżej kilka zdjęć mojego zestawu oraz ostatnia inspiracja czyli twórczość Picassa i Caldera. Odwiedzając ostatnio z aparatem piękny budynek Musee National Picasso Paris – Muzeum Picassa w Paryżu starałam się uchwycić niesamowitą twórczość zarówno samego Pablo Picassa jak i Caldera, na którego prace również tam trafiłam 🙂 W muzeum tym odnajdziecie wiele prac tego hiszpańskiego mistrza z różnych okresów jego twórczości – są to obrazy olejne ale także rzeźby czy wycinanki. Jeśli odwiedzicie to miejsce do 25 sierpnia to idealna okazja zobaczyć wystawę Calder-Picasso ukazującą w bardzo ciekawy sposób dwie jakże różnorodne percepcje sztuki. Poniżej załączam dla Was kilka zdjęć z niniejszej wystawy – Czy sądzicie, że istnieje wspólny mianownik w twórczości tych artystów? Chodź prace amerykańskiego artysty, który pozostawił po sobie wiele kinetycznych rzeźb ale także obrazów czy miniaturowych druków są zdecydowanie odmienne w wyrazie niż prace Pabla to sądzę, że twórczość ich obojga krzyżuje się w bardzo ciekawym miejscu…

It’s time for violet, basket and some art! I’m here for you with my last love – vintage basket witch I can’t stop wear 🙂 Strongly braided in geometric patterns with hand-made wooden handles – it’s absolutely my must have this summer. I’ve never been a big fan of violet purple, but in combination with the vintage basket and burgundy shoes, I slowly began persuade to him – the issue of accessories is always confusing! Below you’ll find some photos of my set and the last inspiration, there are works by Picasso and Calder. Recently during my visit in the beautiful building of the Musee National Picasso Paris – Picasso Museum in Paris, I tried to capture the amazing works of Pablo Picasso and suprisly also of Calder, whose work I found there too 🙂 In this museum you will find many works of this Spanish master from different periods of his artistic path – there are oil paintings but also sculptures or cut-outs. If you want to visit this place until August 25, it is brilliant opportunity to admire the Calder-Picasso exhibition which shows in a very interesting way two different perceptions for art. Below I attached some photos from this exhibition for you – Do you think that there is a common denominator in the work of these artists? Despite of that art of an American artist who created many kinetic sculptures but also paintings or miniature prints is definitely different in the way of expression than Pablo’s works, I think that their work is crossing in a very interesting place …

My last marvelous inspiration, Otto Donald Rogers – Canadian painter and sculptor. Rogers was born on 19 December 1935 in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan. His early work included portraits, still lifes, landscapes or cityscapes…later he changed artistic path for more abstract, his work became increasingly deep abstract. Rogers follows the Cubist-Constructivist tradition, without doubt we can noticed in his art influence of Picasso, David Smith or Julio González. He has worked in different media that range from color-field painting to assembled steel sculpture. Definitely I’m obssesed with his colod field-painting compositions. Rogers became a leader in Baha’i activities in Saskatchewan what we can observe in topic of his abstract paiting… Large canvas, deep contrast and combine of colors makes me curious his perspective for life
