endlessly inspired by the blog It's About Time- creator-curator Barbara Sarudy is a historian and says of her postings-the images usually cluster around some social, cultural, or academic theme or a timeline. I try to choose works that justify their inclusion on aesthetic grounds. There is a little museum in each blog -- no travel necessary.
today the most beautiful series of Portraits of Women Painting- born in the 1800's-mesmerizing faces, powerful women-
I had to let you know, see more here
