Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

"Olympia" throughout the times!

It is very common for an artist adapt a painting done by another artist to his own style."Olympia", the famous nude by Manet is no exception. Initially created by the painter Giorgione ( 1477/1510) with the tile of Sleeping Venus, it was later copied by Tiziano (1488/1510) title Venus of Urbino. In modern times, countless artists have tackled the same subject, mainly after the work of Manet titled "Olympia.' The artist Larry Rivers created his "Olympia", a three-dimensional painting.
Since Olympia was a portrait of a prostitute, I created my "Olympia" in a Peep-show in New York City.
