Stereosc2pe + The Perfect Red | Diana Vreeland, 1903-1989

Bernardino Luini, Portrait of a boy with red cap, 15th - 16th century                                     Eugene De Blaas, Portrait of a Boy, 1884

 “All my life I’ve pursued the perfect red. I can never get painters to mix it for me. It’s exactly 
as if I’d said, ‘I want rococo with a spot of Gothic in it and a bit of Buddhist temple’—they 
have no idea what I’m talking about. About the best red is to copy the color of a child’s 
cap in any Renaissance portrait.”

Diana Vreeland, 1903-1989
