Happy Monday ! A little something I designed for a treat to myself as much as for YOU !! I took the photos late Sunday afternoon and loved the way the light was playing on the table as I was setting up to take these photos... so thought to share them. The first image is so delightful to me, the second for the web site, and so my clients can see them well. I love the romance of Fragonard and collect many images of his paintings and any book I can get my hands on as I love to re-design and play with the nuance of it all. Its said that Madame DuBarry had Fragonard paint four large panels for her apartments when she was the number one mistress of Louie IVth. Each one depicted the stages of love. The Pursuit, The Meeting, Lover Crowned & Love Letters. You can get a more detailed explanation here. Usually what we see in smaller images are cuts from these larger panels. Of course, he painted many portraits and scenes from the time, but his depiction of woman are always just stunning and colorfully romantic if not a bit sexual with many connotations to that.
These cards are available at the web-site, PaperNosh.com with a lovely reverse writing surface, plus pretty little envelope seals and postage stamps! They can also be designed with type-set for a beauitiful invitation by request.
