Louise Brooks – 05-05-14

A direct continuation of the series ‘the birth of new cubism’. This one is flapper girl and silent american moviestar of the 1920s – 1930s – Louise Btooks. Later portraits of female celebrities I called ‘sans titre’ because I didn’t want to focus on the ressemblance of a portrait but on cubism itself set loose on celebrites. Perhaps that people will recognize them but it is not the goal itself.
