Kentucky Countess

 The current August issue of Harper's Bazaar contains a feature on Lexington's internationally famous fashion icon, Countess Mona Bismarck (the only Kentuckian to be painted by Salvador Dali). 

The article is based, in part, on Dr. James Birchfield's Mona Bismarck in Art and Fashion (cited on p. 162), which accompanied an exhibition at the U.K. Art Museum in 1997.    Dr. Birchfield is Curator of Books for UK Libraries.  http://www.amazon.com/Kentucky-Countess-Mona-Bismarck-Fashion/dp/188200714X.  Dr. Birchfield is also the author of Clay Lancaster's Kentucky: Architectural Photographs of a Preservation Pioneer (University Press of Kentucky, 2007).
