A little #bluesday inspiration from #BKMEuropeanart: Unlike red, white, purple, or black, blue appears to have had little symbolic value in Western dress codes until the 12th century. Blue soon became associated as well with royalty and, by the end of the 14th century it was, so to speak, the new blackconsidered to be a moral and honest color for clothes, conferring seriousness and dignity to those who wore it. By the 18th century, blue had become the most common color worn throughout Europe and was particularly favored among the fashionable classes. The sitter for this portrait, Doa Mariana has been depicted with the conspicuous luxury that befitted her high social status in Spanish colonial Peru. She wears an ankle-length gown called a tobajilla, intricately embroidered in silver and gold over a costly blue And white striped satin or silk fabric. #infinitebluebkm

London, England: This fall, one of our Monet paintings will be hopping across the pond to London for the @tate show, Impressionists in London, French artists in exile (18701904), an exhibition that will map the connections between French and British artists, patrons, and art dealers during the 1870s when the Franco-Prussian war raged, insurrection ran rampant in Paris, and numerous French artists sought refuge across the Channel. As such, @curatorialchronicles decided to drop by, not only to see our paintings new temporary home, but also to take a closer look at Tates gallery dedicated to one of the pioneers of British Romanticism, #WilliamBlake, and his fellow Londoner, #WilliamHogarthboth represented in the #bkmeuropeanart collection. #bkmtravels

During the first week of the public conservation treatment of A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie (1866), paintings conservators made a few discoveries about the #Albert Bierstadt''s working practice. The painting was examined closely using infrared reflectography (IRR), a technique commonly used to look for preparatory sketches or compositional changes that are often hidden beneath the top paint layers. Find out what they uncovered at bit.ly/bkmconservation. #bkmconservation
