Lucy in Color

 [An excerpt from today's New York Times Art & Design feature 'In Vibrant Color: A Colorful Gloss on Black-and-White Memories of Celebrities.]

'" Portrait of Lucille Ball from 1944, when she was in her early 30s. Mr. Genzlinger writes: 'No spit take or exaggerated pout here. In truth, this greatest of female comics looks a bit sad. And far more human than she ever did in the television show for which she is best known."'
