Vintage Photo


My parents on a winter excursion. According to my mother, the photo was taken in 1955 or 56 on the Feldberg, a mountain close to Frankfurt/Germany, where they were living at the time and had met not too long before. My mother remembers her jacket to be a Bogner design in dark blue poplin with a red and white seam around the inset of the hood. She says she was very proud of this Jacket and I can understand why.

Breakfast at the Peninsula Hotel, Paris

Marble Detailing…The Sculptures of Versailles


11515VersWeb1The sculptures at Versailles, were for me, especially remarkable, because of the level of detail.


The same way in which I was taken by how realistically the fabric had been painted within the paintings at Versailles, it was incredible to see how realistically the textures of fabrics were carved into these sculptures.


Considering how heavy a material they were working with and how fluid of an item they were trying to convey, it’s amazing they were not only able to achieve the drape of chainmail or lace but the detailing of both as well.
