Oh ... you make me smile! She could have been Modigliani's model...love that photograph!
Thanks for the quote which has popped up on my "dashboard". Fascinated by your interest in Edith Sitwell - I read a good biography of her a year or so ago - interesting life and times and very interesting style. Thanks for sharingHannah
She is such a source of true honest wisdom. This quote is so relevant to current times.
VictoriA-yes Modigliani, there are many portraits of the lady- all trying to capture that look.Hannah- I do fixate on EA a bit-just can't help myself, As Storyteller says, the quote is relevant today, especially in our venue. pgt
Hobac, yes sweet Jesus!
have a more indepth post in the works about Edith-stay tuned.la
Terrific, spot-on quote. And really relevant to our times
So much more poetic that the much quoted, "There's no cure for stupid." Which, I fear at times, I have said a HOBAC "amen" to that as well.
I love all of your Dame Edith Sitwell posts! Her look is inspirational in the Beaton photos.
So very true.I always say that arrogant ignorance is the one thing I cannot abide.
She died when I was four. I like knowing that we somehow were on this planet earth for a short while. I love her poetry and her portraits are full of intrigue.pve
Down East, Pamela- I do love this one, and yes oh so au courant. as always thank you for coming by.
Home- can I get an amen, again? Dame always had a perfect line.
Patricia, So many portraits of her- I would love to see you do something on them! Leaving Edith in good hands-You. pgt
