Town dress with chemisette owned by Empress Josephine, First Empire
"This high-waisted dress with its square, low-cut neckline and decorated with white embroidered flowers and leaves is typical of the fashion at the start of the First Empire. To conceal the low neckline, it could be worn with a chemisette which was slipped inside the dress. This one is in white muslin, embroidered with a sprinkling of flowers and embellished with a ruché trim. This outfit comes from the family of Madame Poyard who looked after the Empress’s wardrobe after 1809."

Wow! A super rare look at shoes from the time.
I’m rather motivated to post random photos of mine, perhaps of my every-day life on the North.
If you love animals or drawing then you should add this book to your collection. The Art of Animal Drawing is a crash course in not only animal anatomy, but usage of lines, page composition, animation and more! It covers over 20 different species, but the material itself may be incorporated into any type of figure drawing.
There’s an online version of the book HERE, or you can purchase it on Amazon.com
“Ken Hultgren lived a short but very productive life.
He started his career in 1936 at Disney , where he eventually became an animator on the short film Farmyard Symphony. Hultgren then moved to the Bambi unit, where he did character design and animation. As you can see in these two model sheets, he was a very gifted draughtsman.
Hultgren put out a great book in 1950 called The Art of Animal Drawing.
Early on as an art student in Germany I found it quite difficult to draw animals at the zoo. When I got my hands on a copy of this book and flipped through the pages several light bulbs went off.” — Andreas Deja
