  1. Centuries later when one of her progeny used her action as inspiration for the phrase “kill your darlings” to describe something else entirely – being an old white male – he gave Tabitha no credit as his muse.

  2. His technique for capturing the transparent cloth, and the drape of it, is beautiful, and seems to be his forte. So why not just paint that, with the faces and hair and hands and feet just accents? An actual storyline is just extra fluff.

  3. He certainly did love fabric. Possibly to disguise his lack of anatomy skills. The model on the right, who has not yet died of boredom, appears to be holding someone else’s ankle, because that knee just doesn’t fit her torso.

  4. It looks to me like gals trying to stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve watching tv for the ball to drop in Times Square. The one who is awake to see it realizes what a waste of time it was.
