The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
This according to The Disheveled Dictionary by K.E. Gordon. What was the last words that Noah Webster of Dictionary fame, said, - specifically the last word. His grieving family had to look it up to get it's meaning. Then it made perfect sense.
IS "The room is growing crepuscular." So his last word was crepuscular meaning of or like the twilight. Quite fitting and poetic wasn't it?
I had no correct eligible answers. Seems most of you were in the twilight ..... ZONE!
I don't dumb DOWN, so wise UP.

I am reading about Picasso's life. The first of two versions of this incident is by our mystery person. That person wrote "On the Rue de Rennes, I often passed the shop of Pere Sauvage. There were Negro statuettes in his window. I was struck by their character, their purity of line. It was as fine as Egyptian art. So I bought one and showed it to Gertrude Stein, whom I was visiting that day. And then Picasso arrived. He took to it immediately." Max Jacob remembered it this way, "Matisse took a black wooden statuette off a table and showed it to Picasso. Picasso held it in his hands all evening. The next morning, when I came to his studio, the floor was strewn with sheets of drawing paper. Each sheet had virtually the same drawing on it, a big woman's face with a single eye, a nose too long that merged into the mouth, a lock of hair on the shoulder. Cubism was born." Braque may have something to say about that last part, BUT the art question is this - Who bought the statuette that Picasso saw at Gertrude Steins home? Good Luck!
