I especially love the second one. When I first saw it at Centre Pompidou in Paris I just stood there, awestruck, enjoying the weirdness

lovely choice! i must check out Jemima, i´ve seen this interview on VICE with her and she seemed like a cool girl! sylvia is a legend, you should watch Cabaret with Lisa minelli where they recreate this painting (and also for 1930s Berlin style vibes and anyway, it´s called CABARET). third one is new to me, even the painter but i really like that she is portrayed from the back. makes it stand out from all those nudes of late 19th century. xx
