“You don’t know about real loss, ‘cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you, I don’t see an intelligent, confident man…I see a cocky, scared shitless kid”

Distance and antiquity (the emphases of space and time) pull on our hearts. If we are already sobered by the thought that men lived two thousand five hundred years ago, how could we not be moved to know that they made verses, were spectators of the world, that they sheltered in light, lasting words something of their ponderous, fleeting life, words that fulfill a long destiny?

ardatli: I've been through your 1500s tag and not found what I needed, so I'm hoping you can point me in the direction of something I've missed. Have you come across any contemporary images of WOC from the 16th cen in middling class -> aristocratic dress? England/France preferably, but I'll take anything you've got! This powerpoint of mine desperately needs some variety on the female side.

I love this post so much…I’m actually crying a little bit. This is literally the very first time I am seeing women who look like me in art I *wish* I could have studied in art school. I am currently in debt from pursuing a degree that is largely indifferent to the history of my people, especially our women. Instead of memorizing and writing essays discussing the same images of the same white people over and over again why couldn’t we have learned about these beautiful renderings? I feel largely betrayed but inspired.

I am so excited to research these works independently and share what I learn with other POCs of all ages. Especially the young ones. I may start teaching again because of this post. This very well may have been just the spark I need to start some bitchin’ fires.

DO THE THING

I’M NOT CRYING

NOPE NOT CRYING AT ALL

I just wanted to remind everyone that if you have a specific project that you’re working on, need help finding what you’re looking for, or want to explore your particular historical interests, make sure to check the FAQ and Advanced Navigation Page.

If yo don’t find what you’re looking for that way, you can always send me a message like the one up there, and I’ll do my best to find the artworks that fit the criteria you need!
