Midnight in Paris art expertise

January 14, 2023

Michael Sheen is a magnificently knowledgeable and obnoxious pompous ass in the film (acting qualities that make him so wonderful as Dr. William Masters), but what he and the two women don’t know is that Owen Wilson spent the night in the company of Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein when Picasso presented his new painting of Adrienna, whom Wilson fell for immediately. Nothing like having been there yourself to know your stuff, heh. Apologies for the pixelating quality – I hope it doesn’t destroy your enjoyment.
