Tjebbe van Tijen, Chanel Smell of Death

See his very thoughtful discussion of Marilyn Monroe used by Chanel and Chanel’s history with antisemitism. Sort of ironic that Chanel, who planned to profit from Hitler, ended up using the image of a woman who converted to Judaism when she married Arthur Miller.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Top dollar paying for top subject and photographer resulting in great results. However, with information provided by you, it is like Wagner’s compositions once one knows more about Wagner.
