I'll be back soon with a fresh post focused on Carolina Irving's latest print, Lucknow. The stylized blossoms over subtle zig-zag-y stripes are calling out to be the jumping off point for a room or a maybe even an event. I was initially lured in by the soft blues and greens, but I like the name Irving chose too. (Remember LACMA's recent exhibition?)
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a link to LACMA's Image Library rich with hires pictures available to the public without restriction.
And also, a reminder: John Folsom's exhibition, Summering at the End of Empire, opens Saturday, April 9 at the Marietta-Cobb Museum of Art. This past post offers a little background.
