International Women's Day

Come to think of it, I wasn't finished with the Wadworth Atheneum after all.

The International Women's Day was on March 8.  I was in the middle of my "close up" series and decided not to interrupt it.  So, belatedly I am showing paired works portraying very different women.  They reside side-by-side in the great hall of the Wadsworth Atheneum . . . which you will see tomorrow.

Makes one wonder if the same problems exist through the years. The clothing certainly differs!

Strong women from two very different eras.
