Madame X

Madame X by John Singer Sargent

It is my light, said Betty X, Betty X says this light ain't yours
And so much wind blew through her words that I went rolling down the hall...
Nick Cave "more news from nowhere"

It's so strange, I was looking for ages for an old portrait painting to 'match' the lyrics. I found this one eventually, and she turned out to be 'Madame X'.. weird but happy coincidence! She looks like her words might carry some weight :)
