“They say now is a different time. Another God. Another morality. Another truth. But the fact of the matter is that there is no other God. And there is no other morality. And there is no other truth. You can't trample everything. Especially in art.”
— Evgeny Leonov (Soviet and Russian theater and film actor)

It's not in our power to enhance beauty if it's not given by nature – although, by developing a good disposition and mind, we can develop a charm of manners that will not only equal beauty in impression, but stand above beauty. But it's in our power to mitigate many shortcomings, improve an ordinary appearance, add grace to beauty.

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. The Virgin Adoring the Host, 1852. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
I recently looked through the work of Ingres on one of the websites dedicated to art, and this picture riveted my eyes to itself. Seeing her, I immediately realized that I simply could not pass by without sharing such a wonderful revelation for me. So, right in front of you is “The Virgin Adoring the Host”. It's an artwork written by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres in 1852 as a gift to his friend Louise Marcotte, who introduced him to Delphine Ramel (whom Ingres married in the same year).
A resembling painting was made by the artist in 1841 for the future emperor of Russia Alexander II (stored in The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow), in which in addition to the Mother of God depicts two patron saints of Russia, namely Alexander Nevsky and Nicholas the Wonderworker. In the version from 1852, Ingres replaced the Russian saints with Helena Augusta and Louis IX of France.

Just don't think that dressing expensively and pretentiously means dressing well. Simplicity is always elegant, and good taste can give clothes a grace that can't be bought for money. It hardly needs to be said that the most important thing, immaculate tidiness is.
