But for Gertrude, who may God preserve, appears to be a cultural expression, doesn't it?

Did the good citizens of Buenos Aires enjoy this onslaught on European modernist culture?
The one that interests me shows Virginia Woolf kissing a chimp. It's that well known affinity between apes and beautiful girls - (Miss V was very beautiful in her youth.)
Who is the accordianist? Is he playing a Tango or a chanson de l'Auvergne?

Yes. the exhibition was very well received. It was commemorating the 35 years I've been out of the country. Ms Woolf, as a young woman had an uncanny resemblance to my wife Patricia (Or viceversa)
In honour to the truth, the instrument is a bandoneon, a distant relative to the harmonium. I like to believe that tango was very popular among the intelligentsia of the 1920's and 30's.
I recommend you to go to:
and listen to a great bandoneon player. A friend and visitor of these pages.

Menos mal que Victoria Ocampo no vivió para asistir a su exposición, Sr. Grillo...qué disgusto le habría dado!!!
A Roberto Arlt, en cambio, le habría encantado, y a mí tambien.
