Image du Jour

Gertrude Stein by Picasso, as if you didn't know

Some days, all it takes to lift my spirits is to think of Gertrude.

This, course, is the painting that caused the following dialogue:

Gertrude: But Pablo, it doesn't look anything like

Picasso: Don't worry - it will.

And it did.


  1. Actually, I always thought Alice B. Toklas sounded like the more interesting one (really!)

  2. Alice is, of course, in her own way quite divine, Joey darling, and I expect we'll be catching up with her at some point soon...
