"1779 Doll" from the Gratitude Train

Lucille Manguin


Moreau le Jeune’s painting “Le Rendez-vous” was the inspiration for the 1779 doll. Jean-Michel Moreau le Jeune (1741-1814) was a French illustrator and engraver best known for his illustrations recording fashionable dress and interiors in the “Monument de costume physique et morale” published by L.F. Prault in 1776-1783. The original etching and engraving is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection.




     “I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”

Pros and cons of this shirt: 

CON: It is way too big, per the norm for Chuck D. 
PRO: It is very sheer. HELLA sheer. It is also very unbuttoned because apparently this was the kind of interview where someone draws you like one of their French girls. 

looks like he dressed in a hurry. in someone else’s clothes.

at least his “I’m too old for this shit” expression fits perfectly…


MY GREATEST WEAKNESS EVER: those adorable couples where the guy is really menacing and everyone is terrified of him and he could probably plunge the entire country into a living hell if he wanted to and despises most everyone and comes off as scary and heartless but he is absolutely, head-over-heels, would rise the sun for her, desperately, deeply, ardently (lol vocab), no words in love with this beautiful girl and is the exact opposite with her and loves her and lets her know it frequently and would do anything for her as he has wrapped himself around her finger and will never leave her and will always love her and she him, despite all he’s done and all he is and he tries to be the best person he can all for her and no one else. and she adores him and will never give up on him, no matter how hard it gets, she will always be there and it is so fricking beautiful
