Tamara de Lempica Innocence (1937) oil on canvas. (27 x 24 cm)




"The face, hairdo, and ribbon necklace hark directly back to various sketches by Watteau. But the result Lempicka achieved perfectly embodies her era’s photographic bent."

Just giving my art historian opinion here, there is nothing innocent about those eyes. Girlfriend knows whats going on.

‬ Etsuko Tashima Cornucopia‭ ‬04-Y’IV‭ (‬2004‭) Stoneware and Glass.

Tashima, a graduate of Osaka University of Art, has been exhibiting regularly since the mid 1980s. Her sculptures are consistently drawn from nature, consisting of large, colorful biomorphic forms. Her earlier work incorporated a wide array of polychrome glazes, which were in part a reflection of the aesthetics of her teacher Yanagihara Mutsuo (b. 1934) at Osaka Art University (where she now teaches). For the past decade, she has refined her palette and streamlined her forms by combining pastel colored glass elements with porcelain bodies to make elegant and dazzling flower-like “cornucopia” sculptures. These works have captivated both critics and collectors, while garnering her prestigious awards.
