Oh Ottoline! One of the last great art patrons. Although much abused by her loved ones, she gave them all they needed to grow artistically. Looking at this photo, I'm amazed at the hair structure required to support the vertical of her hat! Happy Easter.
Happy Easter, dear Gaye.
Indeed, Happy Easter, PGT. I was at the NPG yesterday with a fellow blogger and had just cause to mention you as an intelligent aesthete and online arbiterI love visiting the place; it's filled with such interesting renditions of leaders of culture, though I may have missed Ottoline's amongst them. I hope you'll make it over here some dayB x
Ottoline is a fascinating person, I am immersed in 3 biographies and the same in her letters and correspondence-It may become an off shoot blog.Happy Easter to you Barbara and BB too
I want to wear hats like this.Wishing you a lovely Easter!
