    About Bertrand David (excerpt from a critique on "Nils & Phil" which will be on exhibit):

    …It is clear that David made use of the title of this widely known painting [Gabrielle d’Estrées and one of her sisters] by updating it to its exact opposite: in the foreground on the balcony, instead of two beautiful nude women, we are presented with Nils and Phil who look directly into the lens, proudly showing a more contemporary masculine aesthetic, absolutely non-idealized.
