An answer to a question that has long bothered me

Much against my better judgement I took some people yesterday to Montmartre, which must rank just behind the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame for tourism appeal.
The Place du Tertre just behind it was a haunt for the Picassos and Modiglianis of this world a century ago for the simple reason that it was cheap. Of more immediate interest (to me, at least) is that this is where Eugène Atget would sell his plates to artists.
Today the square is a breeding ground for cartoonists. Perhaps the 21st century Modigliani is there as we speak…
I've often wondered who wants a cartoon of him/herself. This image was my attempt to find out.
