Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Sunday Rose II

Just one more 70s Gatsby image because it loosely relates to an upcoming lecture at the Barnes: Roses: A Natural History of the Queen of Flowers. Led by instructor Nicole Juday, this May 16th program explores the rose's place in culture, past and present, and includes a tour of the Foundation's rose garden.

The screengrab, above, is from the scene with falling roses but, I have to say, Gatsby's suit seems to me to be -- in this light, at least -- more of a Mountbatten pink than a dusty rose.
