|Winter (1904) Edouard Bisson|
|The Mandolin Player Edouard Bisson|
This badly dressed young woman clutching a mandolin is part of a series of paintings showing the feckless grasshopper who plays all summer and starves in the winter. Happy Christmas!
I think the thing strapped behind 'Winter' is a mandolin and she is the grasshopper, freezing to death and barely covering up her boobs. I'm not sure if the other bit is true of grasshoppers but it certainly is true in Bisson pictures...
|The Three Graces (1899)|
In no way connected with nipples, today's present suggestion is one that shouldn't come as a surprise. What else would you want for Christmas but me? Or rather my books, obviously. Can I suggest, completely impartially, that you might want to purchase one of my lovely books to give to a love one or keep for yourself. There is a competition over on Goodreads at the moment to win one of my signed copies of Stunner, look, there is a link at the top of the page! However, if you don't wish to leave it to chance, Stunner and A Curl of Copper and Pearl can be purchased from Amazon or other book sellers.
Stunner can be bought here (UK) or here (USA) or your local branch.
A Curl of Copper and Pearl is here (UK) and here (USA).
See you lovely people tomorrow!
