“unknown title / (“reading joyce?”) by paul cadmus, artist. born: new york city (1904 – 1999)

cadmus created a stir in 1934 when his work, a w.p.a. painting (that is public money, remember) titled “the fleet’s in!”, a mural with characters of various controversial bents was removed from the corcoran museum in washington d.c. he later said, “as an unknown artist at the time,  i benefited from the censorship controversy – and I am eternally grateful to that offended admiral.”

if this paul cadmus’s model could only keep his eyes on joyce and not at us, he might be more help to pictomat. pictomat is trying to find encouraging ways to get back on track with a summer project, reading “ulysses”.

other photos or whatever of people reading “ulysses”? you? send ’em to pictomat.
