There's no doubt about it, that's definitely me. However I am very disappointed that the artist insisted on portraying me without my glasses and collar
(Il n'y a pas à dire, c'est bien moi, c'est bien mon galbe...; mais je regretterai toujours que l'artiste ait eu l'entêtement de ne vouloir pas reproduire mes lunettes, non plus que mon faux col!...)
