May at Scandalous Women


This May we are celebrating women in the Arts. Women who were either the muses of famous artists (Elizabeth Siddal), patrons of the arts (Isabella Stewart Gardner), subjects of famous paintings (Virginie Guitreau, Sargent's infamous Madame X), as well as artists themselves (Romaine Brooks).


Along with guest blogger Amanda McCabe, one of the authors of the new Harlequin Historicals anthology The Diamonds of Welbourne Manor, and a review of Karen Essex's Stealing Athena.

Tara, I hope I do her justice. I find her fascinating as well as Nathalie Barney.

This should be an interesting month.

This sounds fun...are you going to do Janey Morris?

Elizabeth Kerri Mahon said...

Judy, I have thought of doing Jane Morris as well. It depends on how much time I have to do the research, since I'm on a deadline with a book proposal.
