I was saddened to learn of Brittany Murphy's passing yesterday. I had another post planned, but thought I would rather write about her today. These images are from an old Instyle Home magazine, where she talked about loving and collecting art.
In the first image, an aquatint etching, Sara Smiling, by Mary Cassatt. Underneath is an image of Murphy as a child, and I wonder if she saw a little of herself in that etching.
Oil painting, Blowing Bubbles, by Charles Chaplin. I love this painting, and I can see where the whimsical quality appealed to Brittany's effervescent spirit.
