art lasts longer than an expensive dinner

whether you plump for an original or a print, you'll also receive the story behind the image. most of these works were done as part of a project called art/history, so each relates to a specific date. i'm not suggesting that the subject matter isn't sometimes slightly tenuous, but there's always a link. feed your brain & feast your eyes.

little ditty 'bout jacques & francoise

art/history: mercifully, these two escaped the era of heat magazine & its 'brangelinalisation' of celebrity couples. not only were they too exquisite for all that nonsense, but also...francoisques & jacquoise just don't really work as portmanteaux. getting back to the coolest couple in french pop: they were both equally as talented & unassuming as they were beautiful. some people just have it all. he began writing & performing music when he was 17. she was gifted a guitar for her baccalaureat & was soon one of the hottest properties in ye-ye. at the age of 20, he was writing songs for her. they fell in love, produced thomas in 1966 & married in 1981. somehow - in spite of masterpieces such as 'il est cinq heures, paris s'eveille', 'proverbes', 'les gens sont fous' & 'la metaphore' - jaques dutronc (born #otd in 1943) was eclipsed in the anglo world by his wife, francoise hardy. i would encourage you to listen to them both, though.
