The press photo of Leonard Cohen displayed above is impressive, but the legend (second image above) that was part of the photo is also noteworthy for its description of Cohen:
Singer-composer Leonard Cohen in New York. He is still the eminence grise of art song, 21 years after Judy Collins’ version of “Suzanne” made him a semi-household word. (Must Credit: Photo for the Washington Post) Illustrates Cohen (category e), by Richard Harrington (Post). Moved Monday, Nov. 28. 1988, The Washington Post. [emphasis mine]
Followup research reveals that Richard Harrington wrote a Washington Post story called “Songs in Key of Gray; Leonard Cohen and the Legacy of His Dark-Hued Ballads” published October 30, 1988
