On the banks of the Loire

Another name that has not featured in the blog before: Danish painter Gerda Wegener (1886-1940). Perhaps best remembered for her erotic works, she also created beautiful Art Deco scenes and portraits, such as this one depicting the artists community of Beaugency having fun on the banks of the Loire. Her work will be featured frequently here in the future. More about Wegener in the linked Wikipedia article.
