Brooks' gallery

Ran across this online gallery featuring the portraits of Romaine Brooks. Might make an interesting collection of ekphrastic poems. Includes a number of self portraits and paintings of the women of that era: Natalie Clifford Barney, Djuna Barnes, etc. Above is her L'Amazone (1920), a somber portrait of Barney.
