Comments about the painting by Chrysler Museum chief curator Lloyd DeWitt at the Fabulous Forgeries Show at the Artist's Gallery. "Here the homage is not just to Lefebrve but also to Nelson Shanks who was a friend and great collector. Not a forger, I think, but certainly a leading portraitist but these kinds of intimate portraits were actually his stock in trade, not Popes and Presidents as much. " The Language of the Fan" is about concealing, of course, not just Le Japonisme, so this is very funny, and the subject here is barely able to conceal her reaction to the exercise. The tassels really were ambiguous. Well; what more can you say."
