    Well, it’s cool but I wasn’t prepared for the last photograph:-)

    Ho ho! What fun! Goude “woude” indeed; that boy has a sense of humor. Love all four versions. I still have the Grace picture, torn from the magazine when it first appeared. And nothing could make clearer just what an amazing artist Goude is, and what an eye he has, as does Grace, who looks here like a carved ebony statue. It is almost difficult to believe that photo is of a real person. No one can equal, let alone top, the total artistic grace, the feline fluidity and power of her pose, combined with the softness of her feminine emotion. Here is the embodiment of a woman secure in the knowledge that she is a God-given work of art and the holder of mysteries. The untouched male version is also nicely powerful, although it feels more classic Greek. The framed parody reminds me of those ubiquitous angels and some of the Mona Lisa take-offs. Swell show. Thanks. So glad I found it. Teresa M. Hunter, April 4, 2010
