art lasts longer than an expensive dinner

whether you plump for an original or a print, you'll also receive the story behind the image. most of these works were done as part of a project called art/history, so each relates to a specific date. i'm not suggesting that the subject matter isn't sometimes slightly tenuous, but there's always a link. feed your brain & feast your eyes.

art/history: so nice, i had to draw her twice. it's a good job i didn't get carried away & sketch one for each of her films i adore. i'd be months - but that face! those eyes! from the ingenious horror of clouzot's 1959 'les diaboliques' to the political intrigue of jean-pierre melville's 'army of shadows', her acting was a nuanced craft that took the viewer into her mind & under her skin. she made the audience empathise - even with characters that were deeply flawed. if you can't be arsed with subtitles, may i recommend you watch her tragic performance on 'room at the top' & introduce yourself to the sublime simone signoret, born #otd in 1921?
