Marie Bashkirtseff

In honour of Ukraine, here is Ukrainian artist Marie Bashkirtseff, 1858-1884. She came from Poltava, where the Ukrainian military has intercepted a Russian missile.

One could see the boy in the cap as Putin.

I love this girl’s presence and openness.

In the Studio, in Paris. In England women painting was seen as immoral.

Spring. Bashkirtseff died of TB, aged 25.
