Mira Genkovska is a second-year student from Varna, Bulgaria. She is a fan of pistachio ice cream and shadows— the latter fondness being one of the reasons for her attraction to the oil painting Shadow Decoration by Charles Courtney Curran. She says it is her favorite work from the Loeb’s collection in part because, “It shows the beauty that exists in the most commonplace, uneventful moments of everyday life, and it is grounding in that way.”
