It’s coming on Halloween, they’re cutting down leaves. A twist on the classic Joni Mitchell song. It’s all hallow’s eve again, and this year, why not take your love of art, and let it inspire it for your family’s inventive costumes? Artists from the baroque era and all the way to the modern era have provided us with perfect inspiration to have cultured and historical getups:
