What can you tell me about this?
This is one of my personal favorites in the show. The seated pose with the staff was the one long pose Pop did. The way artists like Segall, here, treat his body make him look quite regal.
It really makes you think about the intersection of the subject and his celebrity. Interestingly, Deller first approached Pop about this project ten years ago and Pop initially turned him down because he felt his body was not ready to be scrutinized in such a way.
