Today I got a REALLY COOL book!!!!!
This book is the catalog for the 2004 exhibtition”Yves Saint Laurent dialogue avec l’Art” at Fondation Pierre Bergé that chronicled YSL’s “dialogs” with art, beginning in 1965 with a collection of dresses based on Piet Mondrian’s compositions.
I had not known that YSL went on to design pieces inspired by Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Bonnard (one of my all-time favs), Léger, and Van Gogh as well as Pop Art and African Art in general.
From a NYTimes article at the time: “But I never compared myself with these artists — that would be pretentious,” said Saint Laurent. “I just tried to be an artist in my own métier.”
Happy with my book and wearing my own Mondrian Cuff.
I got the book at Mast Books on Avenue A and 5th St NYC.

I Release My Official Response to George Gurley’s New York Observer Article About Me from My Loftbed Headquarters
Today’s issue of The New York Observer ran an article about me by George Gurley titled “Who’s That Girl? It’s Rebecca Schiffman!” Maybe I’ve been out of school too long because lately I’ve had the urge to write letters to Harper’s Magazine responding to various articles. Once I begin the effort, however, I quickly become […]

I will be in a group painting exhibition […]
