I typically change my blog “appearance” on a monthly basis. I always enjoy looking for photos of fierce vintage women. And pairing them with wonderful patterned backgrounds.
Again, I am impatient for the beginning of the year. And will preempt myself by featuring a photo that I have been waiting to use.
It’s titled, “Marcel Breuer and his ‘harem.'” I’ve always loved the picture. The women slay me. But I can kind of do without Monsieur B. leering from the periphery. So I have cut him out of the picture.
And left what I think the essence is for me: Three Modern. Women.
My intention is not Revisionism. I do realize that Bauhaus was mainly a male-dominated movement (in the arena of recognition/stature/fame, if not fact).
I want, rather, to simply to shift the focus. To really begin to look these women in the eye.
And that’s not a lot to ask: they certainly have no trouble meeting our gaze.

And don’t think for a minute, I didn’t channel these dames when going to get my hair cut today.
I thank you kindly, ladies
