Tableau Vivant: Eaton’s Catalogue 1976

Those of us whom spent my youth in united states into the 1960s and 70s lacked art, Bible tales, and history as universal sources. The tome that shaped our values most tangibly had been the emporium catalogue, a wish guide of that which we might have and whom we’re able to be when we first got it.

Three females stay in vacant stillness, water streaming through the spouts at their breasts.
