Artist Adolf Dehn

November 28th, 2008 Posted in Fine Arts, Holiday | No Comments »

I was looking to purchase holiday cards entitled “Avian Holiday” by Adolf Dehn. I think I missed out on the boxed card sale already and can’t find it anywhere =(. Oh well, I deserve this for waiting too long. I did a little research on this artist and instantly fell in love with his work…

“Adolf Dehn (1895-1968) was one of the most notable lithographers of the 20th century. Throughout his artistic career, Dehn participated in and helped define some important movements in American art, including Regionalism, Social Realism, and caricature. He was known for both his technical skills and his high-spirited, droll depictions of human foibles.”

I love Hayden-Harnett’s Black Bronze Wizard Snake Collection; I only wish they made a large handbag with this leather finish. Maybe in a style similar to their Corcovado Turnlock, Jinhee Slim, Sloane, or Trophy bags would be nice? I included pictures below of the four aforementioned bags to help you visualize =).

I’m dreaming of owning one of these to make my office more cozy =)… I’ve been admiring occasional chairs since the day I saw a gorgeous loveseat done in a Victorian floral pattern in dusty blue at Greenwich Furniture in Mount Kisco NY. I must dig up a photo of it to show you!

Bamford’s blouses are so cute. As much as I enjoy the classic looks, I admire those who can make a creatively bold statement.

Porridge is sometimes carried by Anthropologie. This is how I became aware of the label. Their clothing is great for lounging around on lazy weekends curled up with your fave book or for traveling. Hands down, really comfy!

This is a really pretty dress by Catherine Malandrino. Kind of reminds me of a spring flower…

Hale Bob’s Burnt Velvets & Silk

The fabrics and color combos from Hale Bob are really pretty. It’s still a really cool way to use burnt velvet fabrics without the gaudiness factor.
