Style Imitating Art Invitation {living outside the stacks}

Hi, this is just a short post to introduce next week’s Style Imitating Art inspiration piece.


Large Dish with Cherry Blossoms

Large Dish with Cherry Blossoms, The Met, circa 1690-1720s, Japan {public domain}

Salazar selected the inspiration piece for this round of Style Imitating Art. The past few selections have been paintings, so Salazar chose something totally different – a large dish. This is a Japanese “Nabeshima” dish and is from The Met’s public domain collection. In explaining her choice, Salazar wrote: “The design is both bold and delicate, and the colors are spring-appropriate.” I agree, it’s a beautiful piece that is open to so much interpretation.

Everyone’s invited to participate! Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to that week’s curator – Salazar at by Tuesday, 8 May. Salazar will share the submissions on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey, on Wednesday, 9 May.
