This is from an article in the March 1989 issue of the sadly defunct SPY magazine, entitled “Life Imitates Art: People We Confuse With Paintings and Sculpture, Paintings and Sculpture We Confuse With People.”“Chicks NouveauxThere’s certainly a case to be made that author-study-in-black-and-white Tama Janowitz (b. 1956) has taken an Aubrey Beardsley (1872-98) drawing as one of her spiritual/aesthetic mentors. But it takes two really great decorative artists to bridge the gap between The Yellow Book and Jack La Lanne television ads — Beardsley (sinful, decadent) and Cher (game, uninhibited). Forget about the sort of technical problems only time travel can solve: Cher (b. 1946) is a walking, talking pen-and-ink drawing at every award ceremony she attends, and the influence of her fevered post-Bob Mackie dressmakers on Beardsley’s illustrations of Salome and Lysistrata is undeniable. Do we have to add that an Oscar figured prominently in both their careers?”
