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,藝術家正在蛻變成他的作品。
