One this day 94 years ago:
The 19th amendment is certified and women win the right to vote in the USA.
An Amusing Letter. Vittorio Reggianini (Italian, 1858-1938). Oil on canvas.
Reggianini specialized in genre subjects including elegant scenes of bourgeois life, figure compositions, as well as more humble interiors with peasants. Reggianini combined fantasy with reality, sensuality with sensibility and above all, like many of the Florentine historical genre painters. furnished his costume pieces in luxury.
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
