"Portrait of Diego Rivera" by Amedeo Modigliani
What has happened to yesterday’s dashing young man with a beer and a pipe? He has become a bearded and bloated wine swilling drunk. Who are we to believe? Would the real Diego Rivera please stand up? If television adds 20 pounds, it appears a well-executed self-portrait can shave off 30, and a beard. But wait – there is another possibility. This portrait actually precedes yesterday’s image by two years. It seems switching from wine to beer is not only slimming, it also makes you more handsome. GNAY has been on this regiment as well, but with limited results.
