ELVIS PRESLEY & PRISCILLA WAGNER Wedding May 1, 1967

Shortly before Christmas 1966, Elvis had proposed to Priscilla. They got married on May 1, 1967, at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.

The wedding featured very few guests and was over in only eight minutes.

It was followed by a quick press conference and a $10,000 breakfast reception, attended by friends, family, and business associates from MGM, RCA, and the William Morris Agency.

Following the reception, Elvis and Priscilla boarded a private jet and enjoyed a short honeymoon in Palm Springs.

Surrealist Muse Nusch Éluard – Photos by Man Ray

Nusch Éluard (born Maria Benzn; 1906 – 1946) was a French performer, model and surrealist artist.

Born in Mulhouse (then part of the German Empire), she met Swiss architect and artist Max Bill in the Odeon Café in Zurich; he nicknamed her “Nusch”, a name she would stick to.

She moved to Paris in 1928 working as a stage performer, variously described as a small-time actress, a traveling acrobat, and a “hypnotist‘s stooge”. in In 1930 she met the poet Paul Éluard working as a model. They married him in 1934. She produced surrealist photomontage and other work, and is the subject of “Facile,” a collection of Éluard’s poetry published as a photogravure book, illustrated with Man Ray’s nude photographs of her.

She was also the subject of several cubist portraits and sketches by Pablo Picasso in the late 1930s, and is said to have had an affair with him. Nusch worked for the French Resistance during the Nazi occupation of France during World War II. She died in 1946 in Paris, collapsing in the street due to a massive stroke.

History – Babette Deutsch

History

Coming too close

Is monstrous, like a doll

That is alive and bigger than the child

Who tries to hold it.

It is a clock that tolls the thirteenth hour.

It is a theatre

On fire.

Our history

Images not the castle but the train

Emerging from the tunnel, ruining

Down the embankment toward the modest station,

Where it will lie like a box of toys, broken,

Unpacked in vain.
