BEAUTY: Painting--Jansson Stegner

Jansson Stegner paints portraits of impossibly thin policemen and cops with long spindly legs and arms. The lightly erotic positions in which he poses them--indolently lounging, languidly sprawled, listlessly lolling--create a wonderful contrast to the rigidity, rules, and regulations we usually associate with law enforcement.
