Yves in a moment

Much has been written about YSL and his World recently.

Sometimes a picture-captures a moment: A homeowner's simple pride of ownership. In this case, A Young YVES, in the midst of construction, wearing jeans and sweatshirt-still looking elegant. Surrounded by construction dust with his quick "sketch" drawn in a dust covered mirror of the stunning Monet inspired frescoes -to be-in his Salon.

Yves Saint Laurent , 1980
by Snowdon

"His words are few but always carefully chosen.
He expresses the inexpressible.
Everything He touches, He transforms into a whole world.
This is the gift of artistic genius."
