Wanda in Art School

A recent exchange with my blog-pal Shoshanah (concerning powers nimrodic) pushed the noted Artist/Writer/Translator Wanda Gág back to the forefront of my limited attention span. Here are a few images from her college days, circa 1916:

Wanda and her gal pals:

I've read that she was no slouch on guitar:

And, finally, this self-portrait, done on a grocery bag:

At the point where I've read to, she's written probably six times now in her diary, "I wish I could play guitar." I'm glad she learned!

She's so much better looking than she describes herself! The diary is so fascinating. Thank you again.

I'm developing quite the crush on her myself.

And I haven't yet put up any "sexy" Wanda pics!
