The 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Seville one of Harley J. Earl’s finest masterpieces, and was originally penned as a hardtop to incorporate many distinctive design details into the roof. And as Cadillac's flagship model they were frighteningly expensive when new, hence just 855 Eldorado Sevilles were built for 1958. Equipped with Cadillac's famous Tri-Power V-8, four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission, optional air ride suspension and every other power accessory imaginable in 1958; there are few cars that offer the same kind of turbine-smooth acceleration and luxurious ride that a 1958 Eldorado can.
This example is regarded as one of the finest, most correct and original Sevilles in existence. Discovered in 2011 from the estate of its second owner from new in Arizona, it was an unrestored car just out of almost 40 years in storage with 55,000 original miles, a beautiful original interior and faded original paint. What followed in the hands of its third owner was a painstaking and highly detailed restoration was carried out over a three-year period performed with the goal of preserving the cars incredible originality. The mechanical components were restored to as-new condition or better. The entire braking system is stainless steel sleeved, the engine is balanced and blueprinted with items such as bronze valve guides, hardened valve seats, and a fully ethanol compliant fuel system. The original optional air suspension has been completely rebuilt by the foremost Cadillac air suspension expert, with NOS or flawlessly restored components, and performs better than new.
The original Biscay Blue interior, including the carpet, was cleaned, detailed, and reinstalled and every piece of original chrome, stainless and gold anodized trim was restored at great expense to as-new condition, as were its factory original Sabre wheels. There are no reproduction trim, hardware or soft parts on this car. For example, every piece of the original grille was disassembled, wet-sanded until it was flawless, and then properly re-anodized and reassembled. All of the original gold emblems were treated the same way – as today’s reproductions are different in every detail, something unacceptable to the owner of this vehicle.
The exterior, having never had so much as a door ding, was stripped to bare metal and refinished in its original Argyle Blue color after having an exact color match prepared by Sikkens. The car has never had any rust and has the original sheet metal throughout. In total this meticulous, multi-year restoration consisted of over 2,500 labor hours to complete. Please pay close attention to the panel fit, the absolute flatness of the paint and every panel, and the integrity of the car in general. It was not a car restored for resale, it was a labor of love and restored to a level of appearance and function not often seen in 1950s Cadillacs due to the tremendous expense of doing so.

Sophia Loren with Jane Mansfield
A photo taken 60 years ago of Hollywood’s two most alluring sex symbols is still getting a lot of attention. The most famous side-eye or even stink eye photo in history belongs to Sophia Loren’s reaction to Jayne Mansfield and her famous large assets! Here’s a little history of the iconic photo that appeared in newspapers and magazines with the word ‘censored’ hiding Jayne's exposed breast.
The story goes that Sophia Loren was at a Paramount party in Beverly Hills that was organized for her when she was a newcomer to Hollywood in 1957. Everyone who was anyone was there. But the last person to come to this event was the va-va-voom force of nature that was blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield. She sat down at Sophia’s table which included actor Clifton Webb and of course, had every eye in the room watching her. She barely dressed for this event and her famous ample breasts were the focus of a notorious publicity stunt intended to take the media attention away from newcomer Sophia. Loren couldn’t help but stare at her exposed nipple, as she was fearful that they would come down crashing down on her plate! She said she was afraid that everything in her dress was going to explode, BOOM! And spill all over the table.
There were other photos taken of Sophia at the event laughing and more relaxed with Jayne later in the evening but this version of the vision, will last forever. Sophia admitted her mind was always on that dress. And the only picture that truly shows how it actually felt for Sophia at that moment of time. A bit shocked, fear in the eyes, all of it right there. Forever captured in such a brief but telling moment of history. Sophia exclaimed, “No, no. Well, there may be other photos, but this is the picture. This is the one that shows how it was. This is the only picture.”
Sophia is constantly asked to autograph this photo, but out of respect for the late Jayne Mansfield, she always declines. And she truly doesn’t like to be associated with the photo that launched millions of side-eyes.

The rounded monumental figures of Picasso's f neo-Classical period of the early 1920s sees a return to his 1992 painting Two Women Running on the Beach, with all its traditional religious connotations. Neo-Classicism originally applies to the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century revival of Classical motifs, subjects and decorations, with the inspiration coming from the 1748 excavations of Pompeii and writings of the German archaeologist, Winckelmann. Picasso visited Pompeii and some Italian museums of Classical art in 1917, and their influence began to assert itself in this post-war series of colossal figures. A general reaction against the pre-war excesses and violent origins of Cubism and Expressionism saw a popular desire in art for the order, rationalized structure and humanity represented by this eighteenth-century movement.
The vivid blues and the flowing hair here are anchored in the elongated brown limbs, contorted yet supple. There's a sense of fullness that makes you feel that this is how life must be lived - and war must be abandoned.
It's a known fact that the women in Picasso's paintings are the women who inhabited his life at various times. His works are littered with references to artist model Amelie Lang, Eva Gouel, ballerina Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, surrealist photographer Dora Maar, art student Françoise Gilot, Genevieve Laporte and Jacqueline Roque. They gave of themselves to his art and his work is revealing of their personalities and the kind of relationship he had with each.
Pablo Ruiz Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of Guernica by German and Italian air forces during the Spanish Civil War.
Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a naturalistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. After 1906, the Fauvist work of the slightly older artist Henri Matisse motivated Picasso to explore more radical styles, beginning a fruitful rivalry between the two artists, who subsequently were often paired by critics as the leaders of modern art.
Picasso's work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919), also referred to as the Crystal period. Much of Picasso's work of the late 1910s and early 1920s is in a neoclassical style, and his work in the mid-1920s often has characteristics of Surrealism. His later work often combines elements of his earlier styles.
Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments, and became one of the best-known figures in 20th-century art.
