Welcome to a new Art Imitating Style challenge! I’m sorry for publishing this a bit early. I tried to schedule it for Monday morning and something when wrong and here it is at 10:30 Sunday night.
About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.
This Week’s Presenter
Today, Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks is the curator.
This Week’s Inspirational Image
Girl in Rose and Grey, Miss Carmel White by Robert Henri
Robert Henri , an American realistic painter, created this gorgeous portrait in 1911. For me, this is not what he really know for. As one of the founders of the Ash Can School (more a movement than group) and The Eight, he and his fellow painters painted everyday common scenes and folk, mainly in New York. He was also a well respected teacher and his lists of pupils is long.
Born Robert Henry Cozad in Nebraska, he changed his name after his father fled town after murdering a man. This is just a few small snippets about him. There is a lot of good information about him at the Robert Henri Museum and Art Gallary.
Will You Join In the Fun?
I hope this art inspires you to create a look and that you will join us. Send a photo of your SIA inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to Daenel whose email is firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, June 8th. She share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, June 9th.
Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.
If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are: terrigardner_meadowtree, daenelt and 14shadesofgrey.
That’s it. I hope you all will join in the fun.
