4. (L) Januel Mckenzie and Yasmin Warsame, London, Vogue Paris, 2003; (R) Portrait of a Couple as Isaac and Rebecca, Known as ‘The Jewish Bride’, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, c. 1665 - c. 1669

TD: The ‘Jewish Bride’ is all a game with hands – hands that touch, hands that play. Is it a close embrace? No.
Rembrandt chooses the moment just before they are about to embrace. And with Mario, it is all a game with hands as well. Hands that strangle, hands that touch, hands that feel. A sensuous play.
