Renee Perle by famous photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue
Style icon Renée Perle
These are a few of my favourite photographs of Renée Perle. I found it some time ago among other Jacques Henri Lartigue shots. The first picture was taken in 1931, and yet the first thing that impacted me were the goth punk elements, circa late 70s early 80s. The bangle, the t-shirt, the nail polish, the veil. Was Siouxsie Sioux influenced by Perle’s style? This photo could have easily been taken decades after it actually was. “Half past five at the Embassy. I wait for my “parasol” from last night. I need a whiskey. I’m very shy deep down, and ready to be furious if she doesn’t show up. It’s my curiosity that would be most disappointed…Five thirty-five. There she is! Can it really be her? Ravishing, tall, slim, with a small mouth and full lips, and dark porcelain eyes. She casts aside her fur coat in a gust of warm perfume. We’re going to dance. Mexican? Cuban? Her very small head sits on a very long neck. She is tall; her mouth is at the level of my chin. When we dance my mouth is not far from her mouth. Her hair brushes against both.Romanian. My name is Renée P… I was a model at Doeuillet…” Delicious. She takes off her gloves. Long, little girl’s hands. Something in my mind starts dancing at the thought that one day perhaps she would agree to paint the nails of those hands…” - Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) Diary, Paris, March 7, 1930. More Info from http://www.romanianculture.org/: Renee Perle (Unknown-1977) Artist Born in Romania, date and place unknown; died in the South of France in 1977. Renee Perle, a Romanian Jewish girl who moved to Paris, is famous as the first muse of the famous French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986), who is considered one of the leading photographers of the 20th century. Renee lived with Lartigue as his girl friend, having met her in 1929 or 1930. Her spectacular beauty inspired some of his best photographs. Renee also painted, and a large number of her quaint and naive self-portraits are seen in some Lartigue photos. They do not show much mastery of artistic technique, but they have a strange fascination, perhaps because they show something approaching a manic-compulsion by Renee to paint her own face on canvas over and over, almost without end. The Foundation has made many efforts to find one of these for its collection, as a specimen, but so far with no success. We have been in touch with Renee's step-daughter, who has an oil portrait of her step-mother, but everything else which had been carefully preserved by Renee was dispersed in 2000 and 2001 in two famous Paris sales by Tajan. Renee also worked as a fashion model. An interesting article here: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/summer-madness-1268030.html

‘THE LAST OF THE TEDDY GIRLS’: KEN RUSSELL’S NEARLY LOST PHOTOGRAPHS OF LONDON’S TEENAGE GIRL GANGS
In 1955, the fledgling photographer created a series called The Last of the Teddy Girls, which featured photographs taken against the war-torn backdrop of London’s East End. The images are one of the first reportage series to be made of British youth culture, presenting pictures of working class girls in Neo-Edwardian dress—a fascinating counterpoint to their drape-coated and drainpipe-wearing male counterparts the Teddy Boy. The Last of the Teddy Girls also provided a rare and unique glimps...
You might have heard of the Teddy Boys, a 1950s rebel youth subculture in Britain characterized by an unlikely style of dress inspired by Edwardian dandies fused with American rock’n roll. They formed gangs from East London to North Kensington and became high profile rebels in the media. But an important sub-subculture of the Teddy Boys, an unlikely female element, has remained all but invisible from historical records. Meet The Teddy Girls. .. These are one of just a few known collections o...

Patti Smith & Robert Mapplethorpe at the Hotel Chelsea. Built in 1883, it was the tallest building in NY at that time. After it went into bankruptcy it was turned into a hotel where musicians, poets, writers, actors & others from the art world lived. An icon of NYC never to be forgotten.

Style Icons: Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe
I have just finished reading: 'Just Kids' by Patti Smith, which narrates the relationship between Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe. Their story is one of tumultuous emotions and unpredictable horizons; all fuelled by their love and dedication to art and music. For Patti, art is: poetry, drawing and eventually music (I never realised how late into her career she picked up the guitar). For Robert, art is mixed media and photography. The two find themselves brought together one night in the streets of New York in the late 1960's and they never leave each others side from that moment on. It is a beautiful tale which is at times veiled in sadness. If it wasn't for Robert, the music Patti made may never have happened. If it wasn't for Patti, Robert's photos may never have lined the walls of countless galleries. I have already written one song inspired by their tale, but many more could be written. Some of Patti's drawings: Some of Robert's photographs: Here is one of Patti's poems written for Robert: As there is strength in blackness a deep control a calla flare trumpets grace corporeal there is a steady hand adjusting child lace and bravery's face in veil inviolate there is a steady hand adept in heavens skin spending into black where pure hearts are kin.

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for. – Georgia O'Keeffe Name: Georgia Totto O'Keeffe (1887-1986) Field: painting Nationality: American Art Movement: Precisionism School or Group: Stieglitz group « She revolutionized the tradition of flower painting in the 1920s by making large-format paintings of enlarged blossoms, presenting them close up as if seen through a magnifying lens.» (Wikipedia) Georgia O'Keeffe's white flowers, HUGE oil paintings Georgia O'Keeffe: A Portrait - Photo by Alfred Stieglitz « O'Keeffe turned to working more representationally in the 1920s in an effort to move her critics away from Freudian interpretations. Her earlier work had been mostly abstract, but works such as Black Iris III (1926) evoke a veiled representation of female genitalia while also accurately depicting the center of an iris. Moreover, the centers of flowers are androgynous and can hardly be understood exclusively as feminine.» « O'Keeffe consistently denied the validity of Freudian interpretations of her art. Although 1970s feminists celebrated O'Keeffe as the originator of female iconography, O'Keeffe rejected their celebration of her work and refused to cooperate with any of their projects.» « What they were saying sounded too much to her like what the men had written about it in the 1910s and 1920s and overlooked the larger issue: that her paintings reveal vital parallels between animate and highly sensual forces in nature and humans.» (Wikipedia) I truly understand and agree with her position: artists are not necessarily here to dictate what kind of political citizen we should be; they are meant to introduce us to the golden hive of the invisible. We are the bees of the invisible. We wildly collect the honey of the visible, to store it in the great golden hive of the invisible. – Rainer Maria Rilke Black Iris III (1926)

Cats and dogs are cool enough on their own, but just in case you weren't convinced about this verified fact, here are some famous people with their pets to convince you. Given how most of the pet owners on this list are larger-than-life celebrities, it's nice to know that even they enjoyed the company of pets just like we do. Sure, maybe not all of us can afford an ocelot like Salvador Dali, but it's nice to know that even he had a cat to scratch behind the ears from time to time.

Rrose Selavy alais Marcel Duchamp "Rrose Sélavy", also spelled Rose Sélavy, was one of Duchamp's pseudonyms. The name, a pun, sounds like the French phrase "Eros, c'est la vie", which may be translated as "Eros, such is life." It has also been read as "arroser la vie" ("to make a toast to life").

Man Ray, Rrose Selavy (Marcel Duchamp), photo, 1921 Marcel Duchamp’s female alter-ego Rrose Sélavy fully surfaced in 1921 far before the cover of Vanity Fair came out with Caitlyn Jenner. This makes me wonder how far back can the transgendered community be traced? And was it always considered transgendered? Or by calling it an alter ego was it accepted by society better?
