Art & Tea

I never get tired of admiring these masterpieces. 
The tea from the daily ritual becomes art through the ages and history.
 These are some of my favorite paintings about tea time. 
Enjoy them!:)

“The order never varies. Two slices of bread-and-butter each, and China tea. What a hide-bound couple we must seem, clinging to custom because we did so in England. Here, on this clean balcony, white and impersonal with centuries of sun, I think of half-past-four at Manderley, and the table drawn before the library fire. The door flung open, punctual to the minute, and the performance, never-varying, of the laying of the tea, the silver tray, the kettle, the snowy cloth.” 
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

  1. Che belle atmosfere pacate e rilassate, mi viene però da pensare se non si annoiassero un po'.

  2. Ciao Marcella, in effetti sono un po' nostalgici ma forse proprio per questo così belli! Sembrano lontani anni luce dalla vita frenetica e poco rilassante di oggi!
    Grazie per la visita!:)
    A presto
