Transcript Adam et Eve Musee du Petit Palais, Geneva, Switzerland "1 was painting a nude of a professional model that I often employed. She held the pose for a long time and then it was time for her break. The girl said, Madame Lempicka, I am so hungry, may I have a fruit from the still- life composition?' 1 said, 'But certainly,' and so she walked across the room, still nude, and took an apple from the bowl. While she was near it, something caught her attention and she suddenly stopped with the apple held near her shoulder. I had an inspiration. I said quickly, 'Stop! You must hold that pose exactly as it is. Do not move!' And I sketched furiously. / knew in that moment that what I saw was Eve, and that I must find my Adam. "When I finished the sketch, I went out into the streets. This was the artists quarter. I had before me the vision of the Adam and Eve. In the street nearby I saw a policeman on the beat. He was young, he was handsome. I said to him: 'Monsieur, I am an artist and I need a model for my painting. Would you pose for me?' And he said, 'Of course, Madame, I am myself an artist. At what time do you require me?' We made arrangements. He came to my studio after the work and said: How shall I Pose?' 'In the nude.' He took off his things, and folded them neatly on the chair, placing his big revolver on the top. I set him on the podium and then called my model. 'You are Adam, and here is your Eve,' I said. It was one of my most successful works."
