Posing

August 25, 1986

Michael Kinsley's piece (Editorial Pages, Aug. 15) on Andrew Wyeth's paintings of the mysterious "Helga" reminds me of the story of the man who commissioned a famous artist to paint a portrait of his wife in the nude.

After a long sitting one afternoon, artist and model decided to take a break and enjoy a cup of tea. Footsteps were heard ascending the stairs to the studio.

"Quickly," whispered the artist. "Take off your robe. I think I hear your husband!"
