The photograph could be described as a portrait of two men: the man standing next to his illustration, and the man depicted therein.

One has a pen in his breast pocket
The other is made of stone
One is tight in the face, reserved — as stony as the other

Who modeled whom? Gertrude Stein, as she aged, came to resemble Picasso’s portrait; perhaps in this photograph, the artist is becoming his object.

可以說,這是兩個男子的肖像。一位站在自己插畫的旁邊;另外一位,立於畫中

其中一人胸袋放筆
另外一個石頭而成
可以說
他有點拘謹
一臉繃緊正如
另一個他般冰冷

那是誰?在模擬誰?Gertrude Stein年紀愈大,看起來愈像Pablo Picasso的肖像;也許,這張照片中,藝術家正在蛻變,成為自己的作品。
