While in Paris to film for the Artistic Genius documentary, I visited the Eiffel Tower near sunset.
This time I noticed a bust of Gustave Eiffel under the northwest leg of the tower. Portraits of great individuals are usually not made until they are old or even from memory after they are dead.
As a result, those of us in later generations have a harder time grasping how those individuals were in their prime — vigorous, purposeful, and vital.
Is this Leonardo? Is this Carnegie?
So I like very much this eternally-youthful bust of Eiffel.
