It had been months since I last saw or heard from Gustav. I wasn't miffed because I know his need for solitude when he works as well as his penchant for serial love affairs that leave him exhausted. But I've been concerned, because, after all, let's face it - the guy's ancient. I picked up the phone yesterday morning and heard his Ahnald hello. 'Gustav!' I cried, 'It's good to hear your voice.' 'So, you did not miss me? Only worried that an old man died happy in the arms of a young woman?' he laughed. I refused to take the bait. 'Not at all,' I replied. 'I was afraid you'd dropped dead in front of your easel.' 'Hah!' he snorted. 'Let us not waste time. I have a new work. Can you visit the studio in one hour perhaps?' Of course I agreed. Exactly 63 minutes later - I am well acquainted with his Teutonic mania for punctuality and for me, 3 minutes late is pretty good - I was knocking on the door of the studio. It opened and there stood the man himself, looking more relaxed and rested than a skirt-chasing old geezer has any right to be. 'Better,' he grumbled, glancing at his pocket watch. I saw a large canvas against the far wall, covered with a blanket. 'Is this it, then?' I cried, running over. 'Don't touch it!' Gustav barked. 'I will unveil it for you.' He picked up the canvas, carrying it to his sturdiest easel, allowing the blanket to fall as he settled it. 'Gustav!' I cried. 'You've become an Impressionist.' 'Nicht wie ein verrckter Narr!' he bellowed. 'But this is so romantic. The colors, the shapes - they melt into each other.' 'Look more closely,' he commanded. I stuck my face right into the canvas. Sure enough, I saw his signature shapes and even a bit of gold leaf. 'It has an element of romance,' he admitted, 'but you must know the inspiration. One night I had a dream. All the women, beautiful and not, that I have known' (biblically, I'm sure, I thought) 'passed by in a parade; the result? Romance!'
