JE had a painting of Bill Clinton in a blue dress with red shoes. 

 

 

This guy is the American Jimmy Saville.

Priceless.  You're getting to be more of a raving loon every day. It could be Richard Gere, Meryl Streep or maybe your Mum. Definitely maybe one of them.

I misread the post thinking it was a photograph of Bill Clinton, but it was a painting - yes, clearly of Bill Clinton - and is shown in the Daily Mail link below. Paintings are generally a reflection of the artist's imagination.

 

Quote

The original painting is called 'Parsing Bill' and is by Australian-American artist Petrina Ryan-Kleid, although it is unclear if Epstein had bought the canvas or had a print mounted. Ryan-Kleid exhibited for her degree show when she graduated with an MFA in 2012 from the New York Academy of Art.

She [the source] told DailyMailTV: 'It was absolutely Bill Clinton. It was shocking - it was definitely a painting of him. It was a very provocative, sexual picture. He was wearing heels, a blue dress and his hand was in a weird position.

I don't see it as looking provocative or sexual, unless one finds blokes in dresses showing a bit of thigh sexy, and both his hands seem to me to be in perfectly normal positions. So it seems to me that there's a certain amount of exaggeration in this story.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You must realise that this was posted by an excitable j2, at wine-o-clock.

I think that painting is hysterical - just great!

 

I think the blue dress is a nod to the Monica Lewinsky debacle.  And no he does not appear sexy at all (as if!)

Ah, Techsmex! I was an illegal Englishman hitchhiking around back then in the States! Had a one week visa..and it stretched out ( ie I ignored it! ),.Hey, man, I was 20. Last year I had my 66th birthday and a Route 66 birthday cake here on Crete! 99 per cent of TTers on here will not have a clue about the Zeitgeist back then! Possibly only you or maybe Keefy...

I recently bought Easy Rider on blu-ray, doesn't have quite the impact it has on the big screen though...

 

RIP Peter Fonda

I was 20 when Easy Rider came out, back in '69, went to the early matinee and sat through the second showing, you could get away with that back then ;)

 

The '60s were a great decade, growing up as a teenager...

I remember that time, Wulfrun! I actually watched a Monty Python film three times on the trot at a cinema in Rio in the mid-70s (In Search of the Holy Grail! ) No one kicked me out!
