Merchant's wife taking tea



Sergei Vinogradov Tarkovsky (Russian artist, 1869-1938) Merchant's wife taking tea 1936

Last night I came upon this painting, which I had not seen before. She reminded me of other favorites, which I had to post here for you.  The artist below, Boris Mikhaylovich Kustodiev,  became a paraplegic in 1916, writing "Now my whole world is my room." His ability to remain joyful & lively, despite his paralysis, amazed others.
