3 posts in as many weeks! I am on fire. Soon, one could even say I blog regularly. Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?
You surely know The Progress of Love, the series of Fragonard paintings commissioned by one Madame du Barry, the Mistress of Louis XV? Ghetto Film School, a Bronx-based organization that provides training opportunities in film just launched a very special project. Its students wrote a film inspired by a visit to the Frick, where the Progress of Love is housed, and the experience of gazing upon these charming paintings. It’s a short film about love and what it’s like to truly be in love — something our Du Barry likely knew well.
Watch the film, loves. And know how great art continues to inspire.
