Renoir and Baudelaire

While preparing one of my final exams for my Art and Literature class (yes, I got to prepare the final at home!), I had to find links between pieces of art and literature. Here is a link that I found in this Renoir painting, and in a few lines of a Baudelaire poem. Just look at the painting, read each line, and it’s almost as if these lines are describing the scene directly! Pretty cool.

Art History: Rococo

Jean-Honor√© Fragonard is one of my favorites, because he quite often paints scenes of love and restlessness.

Photo Prints

Look everyone! I got prints in the mail! It’s always so exciting to see my images in print-form!

Since I don’t own my own professional printer, and 1-hour photo at Walmart just doesn’t cut it, I decided to get my prints taken care of through I Print From Home. I ordered them with a matte finish, and they look awesome. They also deliver really quickly, within three days, for only $3. I haven’t been able to send them out to any customers yet, but here’s to hoping!
