The Artist and his Studio. Picasso. 20th Century

Years ago I found an old french magazine from the 60's in Paris that had the first picture of this blog on it.
I never forgot it.
Picasso looks so... well, like Picasso.
That got me thinking that I really wanted to use it on my blog, it was today or never.
Interesting how everything is commercialised these days, check out the post above this one.
I recently received the new J.Crew Catalog in the mail and my friend Alex Katz (who has been painting me on and off for the past 2 years and we have had a lot of fun because he likes to chat while he paints because he doesn't want the models to turn into statues) is on the cover and has several pages in the men's section.
And then the Costume Institute Metropolitan Museum is having an Exhibition coming up: The Model as Muse; embodying fashion.
Can't wait to see that one!
