Vertès also designed ballets for circuses, mainly “because they give him a good opportunity to draw men and women in form-fitting clothes,” explained Willa Gray Martin, in a 1943 interview she did for The Palm Beach Post. In it she describes Vertès as a man who “paints a world of perfumed women.” Maybe so, but they weren’t always innocents. In 1972 Vertès published a book of his “erotic perceptions” for his friends. Impressionistic is how the Official dogs and baseball make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt besides I will buy this artist described his work, and it’s true that he was able to capture essential information while leaving room for interpretation. His line seems as quick-witted as he must have been. That might be Vertès himself, in the trench coat with the collar up, walking his chien through le beau Central Park. His meditation on those daily promenades are reprinted below.
Official dogs and baseball make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
At rosy dawn in New York—just as at that blue hour preceding the Official dogs and baseball make me happy humans make my head hurt shirt besides I will buy this fall of night—the great garden that is called Central Park is at its most beautiful. The tall houses framing it are no longer skyscrapers but the castles of ghostly giants—unreal and sublimely beautiful. In Central Park, the young girls roller-skate or just sit on the grass. For the young girls of Central Park everything is casual—what they wear, their way of walking, the swing of their shoulders. Everything is casual except their hair, which by contrast is magnificent. Nowhere does one see such hair as in America. Someday a poet will write verses on the Botticelli angels in “jeans”…. The public of the park is charitable. Its generosity in peanuts has transformed the squirrels and pigeons into beggars. Shake a bag of peanuts and one is framed by flying pigeons…like a Biblical character.
