El gusto es un poco dudoso pero la gente compro millones de copias de la pintura de la mujer verde. El donĂ³ sus trabajos al Museo de Arte de Sudafrica (Donde vivia) y se los rechazaron.

When I view these pieces I see the time and quality involved , it's such a reality check in so many ways.

The Green Lady is forever in the mind of the British through a peproduction appearing many times over in TV shows in particular 'Only Fools and Horses'.

I think one Prop House has several copies as well as other pieces but it is 'The Green Lady' that I've seen the most.

Of course she is green. Actually, there is an amazing coincidence on this page: I once fell very ill on a stormy crossing by ship to France. Rushing to the toilet, I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. Not only did I look like the Reiser drawing of the man who hates happy people, but I was also the exact same colour scheme of the Green Lady!

Unfortunately, I forgot that toilets on ferries have a threshold and I tripped badly. Lying face down in a puddle of piss and vomit, the thought crossed my mind that travel does not always broaden the mind, but it can make you smell bad.

Wonderful story, Jimmy. A similar episode happens in a great TV play with John Hurt,"Journey to Knock (1991)Were a character who goes to Ireland as a pilgrim stops believing in God after an event of that kind.

I remember seeing that play. Wasn't he on crutches? Funnily enough it had the opposite effect on me: turned me from an atheist to someone who believed that there really is an evil scumbag God who hated me.
