Jean-Gabriel Domergue

…Really captured feminine women.. I guess I am so pro-feminine because I see so many present day western women looking like men and it’s sad to me.  I enjoy being a woman.  At least some ladies from the younger generation, worldwide – are embracing their femininity.  Especially Asian women.  When I am surfing on Ebay, so many Asian women look adorable posing in their online stores. The end of feminism is at hand.

Domergue was born in Bordeaux and studied at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. In 1911, he was a winner of the Prix de Rome.From the 1920s onward he concentrated on portraits, and claimed to be “the inventor of the pin-up”. He also designed clothes for the couturier Paul Poiret. From 1955 until 1962 he was the curator of the Musée Jacquemart-André, organising exhibitions of the works of Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Goya and others.

Here are a few of his paintings I found on free images:

Even a chunky lady looks adorable:

(Sorry I am not blogging as much.  As some of you know, I have C-Diff and still have it (NO, not as bad, but its still very present.  I go to a specialist next Wednesday.  C-Diff is VERY hard to get rid of.  Hence, “Diff”, meaning difficult.  Trying to take it easy as much as I can.)
