Finding Feminine Inspiration Part VII



Woman in a Black Hat (portrait of Irma Brunner), by Manet
This pastel is a stunning symphony of colours. The pink-apricot of the young lady’s dress, her black hat, her white complexion, and her scarlet lips.They all blend together so well. The whole picture seems to convey a sense of class and elegance.

I like the impressionists a lot. In Frankfurt there are some very nice paintings by Manet as well. I always enjoy looking at these pictures.

This Lady with black hat is really a marvellous combination of colours. Thank you for sharing!

I wish I could see the art galleries in Frankfurt! One day I'll go to Europe and see all the museums and galleries and beautiful old buildings. . .
