Henry Moore: a monument to British art

Discovered his drawings doing A level art embroidery based on the home front in ww2... HM was an official war artist & recorded the underground shelters during the blitz.

The British "Rosie the Riveter" WWII poster. Pretty awesome, but Rosie would stomp this girl.

During both World Wars, many civilian women took up jobs in agriculture, replacing those men who went to war. The women who worked for the Women's Land Army (WLA) were commonly known as Land Girls. In forestry, Women's Timber Corps were known as Lumber Jills. At the height of the First World War the Land Army had a full-time membership of 23,000 members. The number exceeded 80,000 during the Second World War.

1950s style included feminine and romantic silhouettes - full circle skirts, fitted pencil skirts and A-line shapes - that marked women's return to home and hearth after the war years.Dior and Balenciaga are the most successful designers in this decade. And all of the beautiful changes from Dior "New look" 1947

Christian Dior

Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.
