Datura

A place for things that make my heart beat faster

I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.

—Georgia O’Keefe (via numberb612)

Woman at a Window (probably 1510-30). Italian, North. Oil on wood. National Gallery, London.
During restoration in 1978, this painting was discovered to have been radically altered, modifying the figure’s appearance to reflect 19th-century taste and morality, perhaps with the intention of making it saleable. In its original state, the figure’s pronounced bust, sidelong glance and appearance at a window suggest that she might be a courtesan or a prostitute.
