It’s right around that time of year where we come up on Thanksgiving and then it’s seemingly on holiday event after another after another. I love the holidays and holiday parties, and while we’re alwasy grateful for friends and family and every invitation that we recieve, I need to figure out how to get invited to a party like this one. I too want to wear ball gowns and frosted twig headpieces!
The photographs above are a diptych available through 20×200 (love those guys) by Inge Morath, taken in 1955 from the Bal d’Hiver in Paris. Perhaps unsurprisingly I’m drawn to her all the more since she is Austrian, though I’ve loved her pictures even before I knew that. They come in all different sizes ranging from $100 to $500 for the pair, so definitely affordable when it comes to art, and all editions come with a certificate that are signed and numbers (i.e. they’re not just posters). And for those feeling particularly flush this holiday, it also comes in a silver gelatin edition that’s available for $1500. Swoon. Definitely wouldn’t complain if that was under my Christmas tree.
