This week's Collected post features vintage photos belonging to my talented friend Nancy Schindler. Some of you may remember me mentioning something in the Poppytalk Interview about a friend who inspired my rubber duck collection...Nancy is that friend. Besides collecting vintage photos and rubber ducks (along with a plethora of other things...I seem to remember a brief obsession with all things Pee Wee Herman), Nancy also makes beautiful jewelry for her shop and is working on a documentary about Antonio Corsi, a famous artist's model. According to the Corsi website, "Corsi’s face and figure was painted, sketched and sculpted by the likes of such great artists as John Singer Sargent, Pierre Auguste Cot and James Earle Fraser. There are statues and reliefs of Corsi found in New York’s Battery Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, St. Pauls Cathedral in London, and countless other locations around the globe." Pretty fascinating, eh?
