THE GIRL WITH THE HUNGRY EYES

THE GIRL WITH THE HUNGRY EYES

Good evening. Let me welcome you to this parlor of paintings. We offer them to you for your enjoyment and edification. Feel free to dwell on them at your leisure and in your own good fashion—but kindly don’t touch, because here they frequently touch back.
Our number one painting in tonight’s exhibit: this intriguing portrait of a young lady, curiously photogenic and hauntingly familiar. Recall seeing this face? You’ve seen it—on billboards, in magazine ads, on television commercials. Oh yes, you’ve seen it—but there are people who, having seen it, wish they hadn’t. Our painting is called “The Girl with the Hungry Eyes,” and should I have failed to mention it, this is the Night Gallery.
