Pink Conquers All


This painting is by Edouard Manet. It is of his favorite model, Victorine. It is called "Victorine Meurent in a matador costume." Very risque for the time. A woman in pants, much less short pants! I love this painting. There she is out slaying the bull...with her Pink Cape. Hey, we do that everyday don't we ladies?...I just want the pink cape.

Great painting! I'd never seen it before - yes - to think - we can see her CALVES!!! Thanks too for the ledger paper.
