Catharina van Hemessen (circa 1527/1528–after 1560 )Portrait of a Ladycirca 1551oil on canvas “With age there comes a richness that’s divine. Age takes on a beauty everyone can’t see, perhaps. But I see it … I don’t know of anything in the world more beautiful, more fascinating than a woman ripe with years, rich and lush as velvet with experience, her humor as tangy and flavorous as sunriped fruit.

I LOVE the idea of getting old.”—Carole Lombard Richard RutledgeA Model Wearing Clairol Hair Dye over a mirror1958, Vogue William Holden and Nancy Olson, Sunset Boulevard, 1950Written by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder, D.
