We have been getting some great feedback on tonight’s #gendermatters panel #Repost @the.heritage.apprentice ・・・
Wowa 🙌🏻 The future is female ✌🏻Thanks @courtauldres for hosting such an inspiring lecture ‘Perspectives on Leadership’. This is what female leaders look like!! A lecture on insights on the idea of having it all (depends on what your ‘all’ is), the importance of self promotion and supporting your network and knowing that not all career moves are vertical! (😂 I can highly relate to that one!). Some interesting ideas of ‘playing the game’ to get into the boys club (aka the job you want) then change the game from within? 🤔 I’m not 100% sure where I sit with this one, but I was happy to be challenged and take in some thought provoking opinions. Some great advice as well, don’t step into someone else’s shoes...bring your own!!! To be a leader is about getting to know the individual!!! And lastly, what is female leadership? Free tampons in the bathrooms! 🙌🏻✌🏻 #perspectivesonleadership #gendermatters #womenleaders #womensupportingwomen #courtauldres #courtauldgallery

Edouard manet- #courtauldgallery

Tall trees at the Jas de Bouffan - again more trees painted by Paul Cezanne at the estate owned by his father outside Aix-en-Provence. I've been to that area inland of Marseilles , it's a very beautiful area in France worth a visit. #aixenprovence #paulcezanne #cezanne #trees #talltrees #tall #impressionist #painting #impressionism #art #artist #art #inland #green #nature #landscape #green #france #french #london #londra #courtauldgallery

Route Tournante - Paul Cezanne - this large landscape is so avant-garde , Cezanne integrates areas of unpainted canvas into the vastly abstract composition to create what is clearly a landscape with a village. He was so ahead of his time. This is one of the first examples of modernism. #cezanne #paulcezanne #landscape #village #avantgarde #modernism #painting #nature #impressionist #impressionism #art #arte #french #artist #france #london #londra #courtauldgallery

Farm in Normandy - Paul Cezanne - I'm trying to learn the way he painted trees. This one is at the Courtauld Gallery. They have several great Cezanne paintings and I need to cherish their beauty now as the Courtauld is soon closing for 2 years till 2020 for major refurbishment. During this time, most of their collection will be on loan to other U.K. and European art galleries and museums for people to continue to enjoy. 💚💚💚 #trees #cezanne #paulcezanne #farm #normandy #normandie #france #french #artist #courtauldgallery #zephyrusadamas #landscape #art #impressionism #london #londra #nature #green

Georges Seurat
Young Woman Powdering Herself 1888-1890
Oil on Canvas

This is a portrait of the voluptuous Madeleine Knobloch, Seurat’s lover. She was 21, Seurat was 29 at the time this portrait was painted. (Knobloch was also said to be pregnant with their child during). This is one of my favorites. Not only because of the endearing portrait, but what is actually NOT SEEN. An infrared scan revealed a self-portrait, the only one ever executed by Seurat. It was said that a friend made fun of him so he painted over it (awwww). This work is a demonstration of his pointillism technique - the use of small dots of pure color juxtaposed in varying intensities. Swipe for ➡️ the bigger picture (That border in the second picture tho 😍) and a very cool close up!

Rubens, The Family of Jan Brueghel the Elder #courtauldgallery

Gli occhi vuoti mentre #DentroLoSpecchio il mondo si celebrava le brillanti luci della mondanità...
Quell'inconsistenza vestita bene che beveva ignara le proprie tragedie, accontentandosi di non essere che apparenza... Edouard Manet, un bar aux Folies Bergère, 1882, Courtauld gallery
