Alice looked at me from top to bottom without looking away, her pretty face devoured by freckles lit up with a magnificent smile and she said to me:
– don’t worry, I’ve already seen others during sculpture with the Academy models, they’re all naked, men and women, I’m used to it
I took the opportunity to enter his game:
– would I make a good model?
she then examined me at length, from head to toe
– yes, I think, you never asked?
– no, never, I am a painter and it is the others who pose for – if that tells you, come eat with me tonight we will talk about our work – willingly, provided that we speak without prudishness !
– okay, but it’s all honor, we’re artists, right?
