Where Beauty Is (cover story)

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

The image used on the cover of the forthcoming book ‘Where Beauty Is’ is a detail taken from one of Wallace Slade’s most renowned works. ‘Les Yeyes de Papa’ was produced in 1982 as a reaction to a failed meeting with his 1960’s muse Brigitte Bardot.

This work is often seen by critics as a mournful comment on the loss of youth, not only of the central subject, but also as an allegory for Slade’s own lost relationships.
