I looked and read all the related information that I was able to access from your blog. If I were to go to an art museum I would definitely want to see more of this particular genre. Actually I plan to research this more to find exhibits. Thank you for such an educational journey! I want to also research the purchase of a poster of Alma Sewing. I was struck by the fact that here in the south you see many black Americans, along with Asian Americans, who are in the profession of seamstress. I love how you can “see” the artist in the lightbulb by the seamstress. Stunning! Thank you for sharing a fascinating picture, and the link to more of the artist’s work. What a lovely painting! So much beauty and symbolism…..as well as Mr. Criss’ self-portrait in the lamp. ? This is a great work! I love this painting, and this style! I can’t even remember seeing anything in this particular genre before…thanks for the introduction and the link… Какой бы мы не были национальности, но чувство прекрасного есть у всех женщин.
