Barbie Ma Muse

Vermeer inspired.

French artist Jocelyn Grivaud has created a website for Barbie's 50th Anniversary that is a loving tribute to the beauty and artistry that inspired her childhood joys, and apparently her own mother's knitting. Barbie is treated as the subject of famous artworks (including antiquities), with thoughtful commentary. I think it's clever and fun. Plus it is highly educational because there are also links to info about each fine artist.

My only problem is that I had planned a series of altered Barbies as statues, starting with my Winged Victory, and I see she already has a Venus de Milo. Well mine will be different.

My version of Winged Victory.

Thanks, Sandra, for the link.
