T Stands For Coffee with Lorette

From the trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, I took with Nan. Matisse's model, Lorette poses with a cup of coffee.



Matisse's table from the painting.


I prefer coffee over tea.  Even though every time my elderly neighbor, Prissy, would call me over for coffee, we always had tea.  I don't think Lorette will make tea. She looks too relaxed.

Let's see if those of us who prefer tea can find some. TBC

Drop by hosts, Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to find out what the rest of the T Stands For gang is up to. If you want to play, include in your Tuesday post a beverage or container for a beverage. Don't forget to link your blog to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's page.

  3. I love this Matisse. It's a genuine beauty. It's amazing the table was also on display. I was in awe of that exhibit, because there were so many wonderful things that weren't just the art. Thanks for sharing this with us for T this Tuesday.

    BTW, I'll take coffee any day over tea, but I'll drink tea on Tuesday if others do!

    1. What was wonderful aboout the exhibit was how he took ordinary objects, vases, cups, tables and elevated them to art.

      I'm sure Lorette has a pot of coffee, you might just have to help yourself. I don't think she'll mind.

  4. Wonderful coffee art, and love the table, how great that it still exists. Coffee is always my drink of choice, too. I grew up in England, but never liked tea! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. Beautiful artwork and I found it so interesting to read the information and learn about the connection with the table and how it influenced the painting ๐Ÿ˜. I think her choice is always going to be coffee too (grin!) but I prefer tea myself ๐Ÿ˜€. Thanks for sharing Matisse and wishing you a very Happy T Day! J ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. The paintings and sculptures Matisse did were beautiful, but seeing the little objects he cherished and put in his paintings was exciting

  7. Happy T Day

    A wonderful piece of art to choice for today.

    I drink a tea, a coffee, a tea, a coffee in some sort of order usually but I do have a preference for coffee really. It makes me feel noble to fit in a tea inbetween :)

    Love Chrissie xx

    1. I never acquired the taste for coffee, but had my first cup of tea when I was 10 years old. Having tea made me feel grown up.

    1. The marquetry was so beautiful. He had other small tables in the same shape that were painted.

  10. I laughed out loud to see your post, because I have that painting scheduled to post for T Tuesday later in the year. I like tea and coffee both, but coffee is easier for me to get right and I have it much more often.

    Happy T Tuesday!

    1. Great minds! I make horrific coffee. The Brother stops at the coffee shop to buy a coffee before he visits. :-D

  11. I like the idea of the table being displayed with the painting. It makes me imagine the scene of Matisse and his model at work.

    Happy T-Day, CJ! Hugs, Eileen

    1. Coffee break is over, Lorette. Put your cup on the table. Now lie on the floor in a languid pose. No. No. Perfect!

  14. That is a wonderful Matisse. It's so cool that they provided the Little Maroccan table. That is a nice touch.
    I drink coffee halfway through the morning as an excuse for a break. And when we go out for dinner I will have a coffee afterwards. Of course here in Spain the main meal is around two or three in the afternoon. I would not have coffee in the evening. Apart from that I drink wรกter all through the day and wine with my food. In Winter we drink loads of herbal teas but it is too hot for that now.
    Belated happy T-Day,
    Lisca

    1. Seeing all the objects Matisse painted next to the paintings really brought the paintings to life.
