Yet he has failed to efface himself; he remains the distinctive individual artist who created it, the very thing he sought to deny. We still see in his self-portraits Andrew Warhola, the well-remembered, much admired, pious Slovak Catholic who narrowly escaped assassination by a feminist and who was a friend of the would be martyr St Norman St John Stevas. Orange Car Crash is 5 deaths, 11 times, in orange. Warhol said of his death paintings such as this: The Death Series I did was divided into two parts: the first on famous deaths and the second on people nobody ever heard of and I thought that people should think about them sometime.

Here Warhol does not impose anonymity in the way he does when he deconstructs celebrity, for the anonymity is there already. Orange Disaster moves you to grief in the same way as the names on a World War I war memorial in a distant town where the men once lived.

They are unknown to me and probably to almost everyone who now lives there. How can I compare my sadness at seeing a village war-memorial or an abandoned Synagogue in a Czech suburb with the total and utter indifference I felt and feel about the death of Princess Diana? Those who felt the same way invented hundreds of excellent jokes about her car crash, which are now gaining new life from the endless, pointless public inquiries and inquests, instigated by foreign enemies of the Royal Family and carried out at the British taxpayers' expense. May God "confound their politics, frustrate their knavish tricks".

God save the Queen! A million deaths is a tragedy, the death of a celebrity is only newsprint. As an Australian joke of put it: A ferryboat sank in Haiti today and three hundred people were drowned. But it doesn't matter because none of them was a Princess. Adam Smith long ago commented on people's utter indifference to the news of a very distant tragedy; it has not been changed by television whatever egotistical producers and presenters may think. Indeed I can still imagine a local paper in Scotland running once again the classic headline: Earthquake in China.

Millions dead, Peebles man slightly injured. What the telehegemons have achieved is the manipulation of public grief at the death of a celebrity in the imaginations of those whose own lives are so lacking in interest that they have become involved as spectators in the lives of the celebrated. The identifiers are those whose relationships with others are so shallow that they invest their main feelings in the phantoms on a screen. If there had been a dip in the number of fatalities on the road in the period after the death and funeral of the People's Princess, if the massed mourners for her had made a point of ever-after driving slow and sober and not complaining about speed cameras and breath tests, then I might cease to regard them as hysterical hypocrites.

There is one portrait in the exhibition that deserves to be seen and admired for its sheer nastiness, for the vicious skill with which it transforms its subject into a monster. In the early s I saw Hugh Gaitskell as a rather heroic figure. He warned us that the EU would mean the end of a thousand years of history and fought two great battles within the Labour Party against the loony left, one against the unilateral nuclear disarmers of CND who had infiltrated his party and the other against the socialist fundamentalists whose shibboleth was Clause 4 of Labour's constitution pledging the party to nationalise the entire economy.

For them the National Coal Board was the great white heat of technology hope of the future and the Post Office the place where they would invent email. Odds and ends of capitalism might be allowed to remain but "the commanding heights of the economy" were to be owned and run by the state and become commanding depths. When I graduated in economics, I was able to pass with glory an entire exam paper by answering nothing but questions about pricing and investment decisions in the nationalised industries and writing what I now know to have been ingenious nonsense.

It was only later that I learned the true distance between Milton and Keynes. Gaitskell could see that state ownership was nonsense; not only is economics about uncertainty, so is the economy and you cannot evade uncertainty through state ownership and so-called planning nor can prices be "decided". Gaitskell could also see that "objectively" CND were on the side of the Soviets and working for the enslavement of the British people.

One of them was a colleague of mine, a Professor of Economics at the University of Leeds, then as now a centre of authoritarian left-wing bigotry. Hamilton hated Gaitskell for exactly the same reasons that I admired him and he overpainted an enlarged newspaper photograph of Gaitskell with a mask motif from Phantom of the Opera. Gaitskell's chin and left eye remain and it retains an unmistakeable Gaitskell feel but the right side of the face is a hard mask and it has a glass eye.

The face is cropped and placed against a red background and is evil itself. You don't have to hate Gaitskell to admire this portrait, any more than you have to admire Napoleon to appreciate Ingres.

But enough of nightmares. There are many cheerful and amusing items in the exhibition, notably Mel Ramos, Hunt for the Best , , a naked woman hugging a ketchup bottle. It is a parody of sexist, erotic advertising that ketches up and merges with that which it parodies. Pop art goes the weasel.

Painting the Portrait

His genious was recognised after he entered Galepath University. There he wrote several major revolutionary scientific treatises; the most famous of them proves that the world actually stands on the head of an enormous troll rather than on the back of a giant turtle.

Portrait of the Artist as a Scalawag - LewRockwell

After his graduation he turned to art. His brother Dimwit 's personal militia brought noblemen from every province to his studio to have their portraits painted. He painted a series of his and his sibling's portraits along with their personalities, a project which took 17 years. Painted portrait has protruding ears, normal nostrils and a cleft chin. Ding Dong's match is probably the closest. Felica Day? Not a chance. Also, per info on other sites, it appears only to be available to folks on the East and West Coast of the US - those of us in "flyover country" are left out in the cold, as well.

Trust Us [tm]. I thought this offer smelled fishy right away. Let the "influencers" and their "followers" feed their face to Google et al. I'll stay happily under my rock. To be fair, if someone is an "influencer", all permutations of their face are already out there. The Fujifilm X-Pro3's new viewfinder, new screen and titanium construction all make for an appealing camera, but perhaps only for a certain type of photographer.
