Interesting article, thanks for posting.

In fact, I think it backs up everybody's points

It shows the attitude AL had towards her work (I don't think anyone has disagreed, even when speaking in defense of this pic...) and it also shows that she had insight into the limitations of her work, (which I don't think anyone has said her work didn't contain) which for me tends to speak in her favour.

As for the gender issue, yes the point was indeed gently meant, none too seriously and certainly no offence meant to be given, or taken...My apologies if it came over as otherwise, it was meant as a little wry additional aside rather than a main point related to opinions on this thread.
