Did you know that the beret was the chosen hat of the French resistance movement? There is a legend among the French that the side you slant your beret to is an indication of your political stance (if your beret leans to the right, so you do - and vice versa). It wasn't until the 1920's that the beret became a unisex item, when it was adopted by Marlene Dietrich. I painted "The Poet" over an old landscape.
