I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality? [more inside]

Where are the art and craft galleries in the Los Angeles area? I'm looking for galleries that sell art, jewelry, pottery and so on that's not mass-produced, but not crazy expensive fine art either. I'd love to find something like Portland's Real Mother Goose
. Nice stuff, not too experimental or edgy and perfect for buying gifts for my parents.

Anyone know of any good books, plays, or other material about Suzanne Le Peletier de Saint-Fargeau
, a.k.a. "Mademoiselle Nation"? She was an eleven-year-old girl adopted by the French revolutionaries after her father's murder by a royalist. Her portrait by Jacques-Louis David
is currently on display at the Getty in Los Angeles, and as the book blog Romancing the Tome says
the story of her life would make for excellent reading. Surely she's found her way into print by now?
