Came across this in Flickr and had to check to see if it was legitimate. First I found the Mirror article but then I found the article below it which debunks it.

School allows boys to wear skirts but NOT shorts during hot weather in move towards 'gender-neutral' uniform policy

This is them 10 years later.
Hello everybody and welcome back to My Weekly Flickr.

This week turned out not to be the total washout predicted and today is a beautiful, warm day. Let’s hope this is a trend.

Harkening back to the auctions Sotheby’s sent me an email about this painting in their London Old Master’s auction. I thought it was very much in the style of Van Dyck, particularly the hands. I know Van Dyck was an influence and my brother said that Lely followed Van Dyck as the pre-eminent portrait painter of his time.

A Magnificent Double Portrait by Sir Peter Lely

And here’s Christie’s being taken to task for not doing its due diligence on Nazi looted art.

Did Christie’s Do Its Homework? Buyer of Nazi-Tainted Work Says No

I went back to the Met this week to see Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence. It’s filled with Impressionist artist’s paintings of parks and flowers as well as some portraits. The bulk of the exhibit is drawn from the Met’s collection but there were also a number of things from private collections. Apparently there are issues with reproducing images on the website of items in the exhibit that are from private collections. Consequently I had to search the web to find them. Starting with the second item, the Courbet and continuing to the sixth item, Monet’s Water Lilies, all five are from private collections.

Attributed to Charles Williams or George Cruikshank - Imperial Botany – or a Peep at Josephine's Collection of Engilsh Exoticks, vide the Champion Jany 30, 1814 – This is an elaborate political cartoon showing Empress Josephine in her garden with notable figures represented as potted plants. “Wellington (on right) and Prince Regent (as Royal Sun-Flower) grew strong, while Napoleon (Crown Imperial) is a droopy weed.”

Gustave Courbet - Bouquet of Flowers – One of many still lifes in the exhibit of flowers bursting in color.

Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot - In the Woods at Ville d'Avray – Woods rather than garden but still three women enjoying a pleasant day communing with nature.

Monet - Adolphe Monet in the Garden of Le Coteau at Sainte-Adresse – This is owned by Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle, and has been on display at the Met for a long time.

Gustave Caillebotte - LE PARC MONCEAU

Claud Monet – Water Lilies 1905 – I’m guessing this version is the painting from Sotheby’s auction. Monet painted so many Water Lilies paintings that’s it difficult to be sure, I found two that were painted in 1905 and I’m relying on my memory to choose this one.

Claude Monet - Garden at Sainte-Adresse – This is a companion to the Larry Ellison painting above again showing Adolphe Monet relaxing in a chair in the garden.

Edgar Degas - A Woman Seated beside a Vase of Flowers (Madame Paul Valpinçon?) – Besides being very beautiful I included this painting as it hung on the wall of our apartment in the Bronx when I was a child. My brother purchased a print for my Mother.

Claude Monet - Bouquet of Sunflowers

Van Gogh – Sunflowers – Very different sunflowers than the ones Monet painted.

Auguste Renoir - Bouquet of Chrysanthemums – Vivid, bright colors very representative of Renoir’s palette.

Claude Monet – Chrysanthemums – More subdued colors which Monet favored.

This is a link to the Overview page.

This is a link to objects in the exhibit although not all of them. For whatever reason there are only 114 images of the 150 items in the exhibit.

This is a link to videos concerning the exhibit. The one I recommend is the short clip of Monet painting in his garden. As it starts you can see the Japanese bridge he made famous in the paintings.

This is a link to an article in Forbes of all places with multiple illustrations from the exhibit.

This is a link to an installation view of the exhibit

All very beautiful making for a pleasant outing.

Now let’s visit the Flickrs.

I think we've all fantasized about boy ballerinas and in today's NY Times there's an article on a young man who actually is a ballerina.

Me, a 10 year old boy, dressed as Madonna in 1985.

A boy was dressed up as ‘Annabelle’ by mom during Halloween but they had to rush to the dental appointment with the costume on. The dentist couldn’t hold his laughter anymore when he saw the boy’s facial expression

Victorian Carte De Visite CDV: Young Boy In Dress Posy Flowers 2 Of 2

When I saw Aunt Sarah written on the back I contacted the seller to let her know that I thought she had confused this card with a different one. But she replied right away to say that it actually was a boy. This was her reply.

No there were several cards in the same hand writing from one collection.. some said “To Aunt Sarah” and plus I have another image of the same boy but in a suit with a toy boat.. I’m lead to believe that boys in dresses wasn’t unusual (though I think the posy Of Flowers is lol) for that time but I yet seen a girl in Trousers.

It's like detention, but during the school day -- or like being grounded.  You are isolated in a separate room instead of going to regular classes.

What the hell is an "In School" suspension? I never heard of that before. Is that some kind of weird suspension where you actually have to stay in school? Then is it really a suspension, or just detention?
