Friday Random Ten artprinted

Belatedly picked out a wall calendar for my place tonight. At the neighborhood bookstore, and they're marking them down now. I picked out a Renoir calendar. I hadn't really looked much at his stuff before, but I don't know why. He seems to have been sort of an impressionist-leaning Rubens, which certainly gains points with me.

An excellent and very colorful choice for a piece of art to look at month by month. Someone said the reason the frames around Rubens paintings are so massive is that's the only way his women can be contained.

Heehee. That's cute. PP Rubens loved to create, and he could afford both a lot of paint and a lot of assistants. So it wasn't just the womenses who got big.
