Hmmm...well I recognize Einstein and Ghandi. Is that Ginsberg and Kerouac up in the left corner? That looks like Paris or maybe Venice in the top middle and Georgia O'Keefe in the top right. I think that's Oscar Wilde in the bottom middle. Not sure about the woman next to him, but it looks like Martha Graham. Although it's on the tip of my tongue, I can't name the gentleman with the mustache in the center. How'd I do?

Einstein. Graham. O'Keefe. Apollo (but not the archaic torso). St. George? Ghandi. Kafka. Kerouac and Cassady—or maybe it’s Ginsberg? Wilde. Not sure about the centerpiece—not Cavafy—it’ll come to me. Above it is foggy man with gondola—is it Venice--is it Thomas Mann?
Bottom Left: Flo—unrecognizable but nice legs.

Bottom Right: A pair of trunks—some trees—Ashbery?

Wow: you guys are very close. I thought the center photo would be obvious to most. More guesses?

Peter said...

PS: Sorry, I had to delete a few Blog-Bot comments . . . sheesh.

Emily Lloyd said...

Proust, baby. I want to go make one now...

Eduardo C. Corral said...

And the women being licked by Einstein's tongue is the poet Ai.

Collin said...

Is that Proust in the center? Yes...I believe it is.

I've also been getting "Spam"on my blog lately. What the hell is up with that bullhonkery?

Peter said...

Em: Absoulutely, Proust.
Eduardo: Yes Ai!! I am so glad someone recognized her.

And the man with Ginsburg is: ??

A. J. Patrick Liszkiewicz said...

Is it Gary Snyder? Even full-size, I can't see him all that well.

Lyle Daggett said...

The man with Allen Ginsberg is, I believe, Peter Orlovsky, no?

Peter said...

Lyle: Bingo!!
Peter Orlovsky was Ginsberg's long term partner. Go here to see a another pic of them together. Such a lovely couple.

Are you kidding me?! This spammer stuff is getting out of control. Sorry to see this here Peter.

Charles said...

I see Georgia O'Keeffe, don't I?

And the city looks a bit like Venice.

Peter said...

Yes: O'Keeffe, Venice. And St. Petersburg.
