Can you connect John Singer Sargent and Andy Warhol in one step? Sure - they were both obsessed with society girls. Now the painter David Foote takes his shot at stardom - or at least a steep commission from a wealthy family. David's drawn Patrick McMullan regulars like Jessica Joffe (left) and Olivia Palermo, and he puts them all up for exhibit next week at the L Gallery Studio, with a party hosted by Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian. We expect the portrait subjects will attend their big unveiling, but which socialite will lend her patronage to Mr. Foote for a future painting of herself? Like the Spring '09 collections, that's still TBA...
