Cupcake Katy by Will Cotton; © 2010 Will Cotton; Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, promised gift of the James Dicke Family.
“Will Cotton’s tongue-in-cheek portrait of Katy as a ‘cupcake’ brings to mind a traditional European portrait of a bewitching 18th-century belle—Madame de Pompadour perhaps?—butter melts in neither of their mouths. Sweet but no mere piece of ‘candy,’ the woman is accessorized but not labeled: she’s the one in control.” (via)
“Cupcake Katy,” a new addition to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, portrays internationally successful pop singer Katy Perry. It will be on view June 18.
