This portrait of Luisa Casati The Quai Venice by Kees van Dongen ca. 1921 was the inspiration behind Norman Norell's Fall 1960 "van Dongen Collection" (Norell also owned the portrait). I posted the below image several months ago before I even knew about Marchesa Casati, kinda neat. I just really love Norell's Mermaid dress and how this shoot was styled and now I know why!
