Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney portrait by Robert Henri

I am preparing a much longer post… but for now:

Doesn’t Robert Henri’s Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney awe in its richness, beauty and presence?

I love that the original which hangs in The Whitney Museum in New York isn’t a small one.

One is able to appreciate the large scale and depth of work. I also really like that the portraiture is of a woman who has chosen modest clothing and allowed jewelled colours like emeralds, sapphires and turquoise to shine.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
