My Great-great-great grandmother ended her days as an inmate of Windsor workhouse. Born in the early 1800's she ran a pub until she was well into her eighties. But when you were too old to work and support yourself and your family couldn't support you, this was your only option.
WW2 Rations for One Person in Britain, how slim we would all be if we stuck to this! (These are the rationed foods, most people would grow their own vegatables) so veg would not be rationed, no eggs unless you had hens, just powdered egg. Some items were still rationed when I was born in the early 50s. Just think of all the choice we have now!
Agnès Martin est née en 1912 à Saskatchewan au Canada. La majeure partie de son travail se compose de grilles carrées. Bien que minimaliste dans la forme, ces peintures s'écartent de l'intellectualisme, fréquent dans les démarches minimalistes, au profit d'une approche personnelle et spirituelle. Ses compositions «expressionnisme abstraite» utilisaient essentiellement le noir, blanc, et le brun.
