"Pope" Covers L’Uomo Vogue

Big quotes around pope, guys. Big quotes.

1. Artist Francesco Vezzoli covers the May-June issue of L’Uomo Vogue.

You don’t want artists to go the standard pensive portrait route male actors get, right? Of course not.

2. According to the magazine, it’s a “self-portrait as Pope Innocent X (after Diego Velàzquez).”

So the inspiration is NOT Francis Bacon as you might have thought. Maybe he’s too lowbrow for the Vogue Italia family.

3. Don’t look so down, Pope Francis — your day will come.
