Norma Shearer, Slave to Fashion, 1925


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Good lighting for the subject; for the background, not so much because of reflection, especially on the right. Good composition, the squares on the model’s clothing and the pattern of the wall.
    My mother was 11 at that time and probably was impressed by the styles and the ways of that day. When people see pictures of earlier times, think of your ancestors and their lives in those places and eras.
