I chose Maurice Prendergast’s Bathers 4, a watercolor he completed in 1919 at the age of 61, for the fourth week of my Bathers-inspired fashion posts. Painting mostly beach and park scenes, he was labeled a Post-Impressionist and Primitive/Naive Painter, but Prendergast was a true independent; his highly personal use of flat jewel-like colors painted in pattern/mosaic-like forms fits into no one particular category of American Art.

One of the first American painters to support the work of Paul Cézanne, Prendergast was influenced by his form and color, but did not study in Paris until his early 30s. By the end of his life, his work was shown in the company of Cézanne, Matisse, Seurat, and Van Gogh, but the Metropolitan Museum of Art passed on a retrospective after his death because his work was still seen as too radical. The Whitney Museum held his first New York memorial exhibition 10 years later.

With just a few weeks of summer left, it seems time to look to at a few fall pieces. Clicking through Prada’s Fall runway images, this stunning dress stopped me in my tracks. The particular teal with contrast red stripes, the slouchy romantic drape, the pairing with a big bag–even though more fall than summer, echoes the relaxed feel and colors of Bathers 4. P.S. my new Scandalous Lover red bag line has arrived and I couldn’t resist adding one into this little round up.

Does this painting speak to you? What do you think about this outfit?

  • Prada dress
