  3. Of all the wonderful things in these photos, I can't get past the wonderfully reshaped Navy "dixie cup" hat that Gerald wore without accompaniment. Have to try that out myself...the hat I mean.

  8. Hi there...

    My name is Henning and I am a graphic and motion designer from Germany. I just finished a project which might be of an interest for you as it is about Gerald Murphy’s painting WATCH.

    While doing some research in this field I came across this post and well, I thought: Maybe you are interested in this one as well...
