To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

A choice of different red haired women

Glauco Cambon

Hello again dear followers and drifters. Hope you are all healthy and in good spirits.
We start out with an Italian artist I never ever heard about : Glauco Cambon  
Born in Trieste 1875 and died 1930 in Biella. He is not to be mixed up with an american Art professor by the same name who died 1985.Some times you can find pictures of his sold at the Italian auctionsite Stadionaste.It
This homepage also shows hundreds of other Italian artists and is a good place to find unknown pictures or forgotten artists

Theodor van Rysselberghe
Portrait of  Miss Gertrude

This artist whom I showed many times is just outstanding ! He manages to add everything to a portrait, light atmosphere, feelings, color harmonies,movement, color variation and temperature and color perspective, psychological valuation of sitter You name it,  Van Rysselberghe  made symphonies where others just wrote  plain songs . Compare with the picture below
and  see the quality difference between the  two similar motifs who both show half dressed women with  similar expressions .

Sometimes one can make the hands smaller to give an impression of innocence
but this is extreme. Here one hand is small and the other normal in size ,
 it looks really idiotic. The head gets huge with so small a hand ! 

Pablo Picasso

 Picasso decided to exaggerate the size of the hands and made them  huge!
And he tipped the hair so it fit into the frame.
A very funny picture!

Hans Makart
Portrait of Clotilde Beer

Joseph Granie
Portrait of Yvette Gilbert

This picture is a masterpiece!
No need for fancy jewelry or hats with feathers 
and clothes that are so decorated in the neck so you look like a turkey. 
This woman glows in the simplicity and warmth of her colors and sweet olive eyes.
