The Formidably Artistic Chic of Sculptress Princess Pignatelli.

Anna Maria dei principi d’Aragona Pignatelli di Terranova di Cortes – also known as Manana (the future, or tomorrow) – jumped out of the pages of a vintage Life September 19, 1949 magazine – as I was appreciating the magazine’s impressive color-print quality.  When I saw her, I recognized the kindred soul of an artist… and a very flamboyant soul.  Spectacular!

Here she is for you to observe too.

Mysterious, Avant Garde, Bizarre… Anna Maria dei principi d’Aragona Pignatelli di Terranova di Cortes looks as if creativity emanates from her every pore.

There is more information here at this Rocaille link – which leads me to think – perhaps Manana is seated next to one of her own sculptures.
