  • Yesterday, I helped plan an outfit...for 2021. And no, I won't be wearing the outfit...they still haven't asked😉. The Museum of Fine Arts has dedicated a small gallery to an Exhibition Lab. They are planning a major show around the fashion in John Singer Sargent's paintings. The museum staff can exhibit certain pieces, experiment and get public feedback. When Sargent painted wealthy women, he was a master of detail capturing the texture and detail of various fabrics. This is a portrait of Mrs J.P. Morgan, Jr. 1905-6. This is actually the dress worn by Mrs Morgan. Everyone can leave a comment which is how I "helped". #fashion #mfa #museumoffinearts #johnsingersargent #art #artisforeveryone

  • Joseph Mallord William Turner, Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On), 1840, oil on canvas “One of Turner’s most celebrated works, Slave Ship is a striking example of the artist’s fascination with violence, both human and elemental. The painting was based on a poem that described a slave trip caught in a typhoon, and on the true story of the slave ship Zong whose captain, in 1871, had thrown overboard sick and dying slaves so that he could collect insurance money available only for slaves “lost at sea.” Turner captures the horror of the event and terrifying grandeur of nature through hot, churning color and light that merge sea and sky. The critic John Ruskin, the first owner of Slave Ship, wrote, “If I were reduced to rest Turner’s immortality upon any single work, I should choose this.” . Paul Signac, Antibes, The Pink Cloud, 1916, oil on canvas. “Signac remained committed to Divisionism throughout his career, but the way he applied paint varied greatly. Unlike the brushy dashes and methodical dots of his earlier paintings, here, Signac employs a regularized, rectangular stroke that takes on the quality of a dazzling mosaic. In a 1916 letter to a critic, Signac annotated a sketch of this “portrait of a cloud” to reveal the cloud’s personalities.” He referred to the vaporous form at upper left as Loïe Fuller - an American dancer who had taken Paris by storm in the 1890s - and pointed out “some Michelangelesque figures” in the dark underside of the cloud at tight. The German gunboats in the lower right corner he called “the black squadron.”

  • Edgar Degas, Visit to a Museum, about 1879-1890, oil on canvas. “In a gallery - most likely at the Louvre - 2 women examine the gift-framed paintings that surround them with the aid of a guidebook. Their attitudes suggest interest but also exhaustion bought on by a long day at the museum. Degas produced a series of paintings and prints on the theme of women in museum galleries during the 1880s. His model for several of these was, Mary Cassatt, whom Degas invited to join the Impressionist group in 1877.”

  • What does it take to become an influencer, someone who brands want to work with? . I’ll tell you it’s much more than having a lot of followers... . Why? Because that can be gamed... you can buy fake followers, use questionable methods like follow/unfollow and others... . To have real influence means building a following of the people you really want to impact... it means you want to change a little piece of the world for the better. It means you want to find those people who are gonna care about you, your ideas and follow you for the right reasons... . So how do you do this? . Figure out what’s unique about you. Every one of us is a individual, a unique person with a special set of talents and abilities. . Start by determining what these are and start expressing them in your own way through images, words, videos - and make sure your work is yours with the stamp of your own individuality. Don’t try to be like any one else. . It will take time. The truth is that there is no shortcut to being a true influencer, and when you think about it, there shouldn’t be. . I work with influencers in many fields, business niches. I tell you this as a fact... brands want to work with real, true blue influencers. People who can motivate their audience, even if they are small in numbers. . This is what brands want. So how does this apply to you? . Here’s an example... Andy Warhol. He took a bold stand on art and how it is perceived and created. He asked very basic questions like what is art? The result is that he changed the art world and the larger culture... . His impact is monumental... probably bigger than he ever expected. This pic is of a doll you can buy in the art museum gift shop! Do you think Warhol thought this would happen when he was starting out out? I bet not. . This is an example of how a single person can become a genuine influencer. So get going and start changing your bit of the world. You’ll be glad you didn’t resort to cheap short cuts. You’ll make yourself proud- and that’s really the only person that counts.
