  1. Sorry for the broken photo links. I've been away for months and only just learned about the disastrous decision by the photobucket site to break all links unless you pay them USD 400 dollars per year. I'll quit photobucket but getting the images - which are entirely Madonna-related - off of photobucket by downloading them is not a smooth process. I'm thinking about switching to Google Photos, but I don't know if Google Photos has an easy way of linking to the Madonna Nation forum. If anyone has suggestions / recommendations in this regard, I would be happy to hear them.
  2. YOUNG, BOLD and AGGRESSIVE!

    Legendary greatness. BTW, I didn't need diapers anymore at that time...

  4. PIERRE MOLINIER, Auto-portrait (1970)
  5. I identified them from a video posted on Instagram a few years ago (by either dancer Norman Shay, Rocco or one of his friends). In that video they can be seen hanging on the wall of her New York home - in the downstairs room with the piano. Quite blurry, so it took quite a lot of effort to recognise what those shapes represented.

    Hey, thanks! Going to watch it now.
  7. Madonna Instagram thread

    GREAT gif. Would love to see what happens next in that scene. Anybody know?
  8. Photography she owns: SEYDOU KEÏTA, Sans titre (1953-1957) - photograph of twin babies The above photograph by SEYDOU KEÏTA (1921-2001) could be seen hanging on the wall of what used to be the master bedroom in M's former apartment in the Harperley Hall building in the picture below, released by real estate agency BHS when the apartment was put up for sale in 2012:
  9. With respect to the clothes worn by the woman in the portrait painting: the tv-series Downton Abbey used similar clothes in the first episode of its sixth and final season, taking place in the year 1925. See the picture below of main character Lady Mary Crawley, astride (!) a horse. So when M gave her painting the following caption ABOUT THE WOMAN'S STYLE in her Instagram post on November 5th 2013...... ...........she was making several historical points!
  10. Painting she owns: GERDA WEGENER ? To celebrate 50,000 views for this art collection thread, I had hoped to definitively identify the painting above - and the artist who made it. HOWEVER, I have not found any confirmation that it is indeed by the artist Gerda Wegener. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In the absence of confirmation / refutation, below are several other paintings by Gerda Wegener that I think make her a good candidate. GERDA WEGENER, Les deux amies, Capri (1921) GERDA WEGENER, Lily - Portrait de femme (1922) - Collection of Centre Pompidou, Paris, France GERDA WEGENER, Eva Heramb (1934) GERDA WEGENER, Unknown title - Portrait of Maggi Baaning (1934) The story of GERDA GOTTLIEB WEGENER (1886-1940) and her partner EINAR WEGENER, who became LILY ELBE is quite fascinating. Hollywood recently turned it into a movie entitled "The Danish Girl". Actress Alicia Vikander won an Academy Award for her role as Gerda Wegener.
  11. Not sure she owns this, but she posted it on Instagram in August 2016: KIM ENGLISH, Top Hat (2014) On August 3rd 2016 she posted as follows:
  12. So she has a house in California. Anybody know where?
  13. EMILIO PETTORUTI, Contraluz (1926) This painting was bought on May 1st 1990 at Christie's in New York. It can be seen in the picture below taken at her former Harperley Hall apartment: So, for those who have followed this thread from early on: finally the artist of this work of art is known! An artist who's name was not among the list of 10/15 painters suggested earlier. :-) EMILIO PETTORUTI (1892-1971) was an Argentine painter, who caused a scandal with his avant-garde cubist exhibition in 1924 in Buenos Aires. At the beginning of the twentieth century, Buenos Aires was a city full of artistic development. Pettoruti's career was thriving during the 1920s when "Argentina witnessed a decade of dynamic artistic activity; it was an era of euphoria, a time when the definition of modernity was developed."[1] While Pettoruti was influenced by cubism, futurism, constructivism, and abstraction, he did not claim to paint in any of those styles in particular. Exhibiting all over Europe and Argentina, Emilio Pettoruti is remembered as one of the most influential artists in Argentina in the 20th century for his unique style and vision.
