Eve Babitz, Los Angeles artist:

‘Babitz’s parents were friends with the composer Igor Stravinsky who was her godfather. Her first brush with notoriety came through a famous photograph of a nude, twenty-year-old Babitz playing chess with the artist Marcel Duchamp on the occasion of his landmark retrospective at the Pasadena Museum of Art…’

A-mazing.
