I love what you did with the dress; such a meticulous, but time-consuming job! Did you use any tool other than the brush or a mode other than "multiply"? — MB

You bring up a crucial point, Laszlo; the way the *general public* reads images, including paintings, and what factors might influence this process. The Steins Collect exhibit was being held in NY around the same time as Weegee's. When I visited in late May 2012, most of the discussions inside the Met revolved around Gertrude Stein's ties to the Vichy regime rather than the paintings themselves. I wonder how much the NY Times's earlier critical coverage might have influenced these discussions/readings.
