Orton Park, I miss your mighty oaks!

Spaightwood Galleries formerly occupied a large Victorian house at the corner of Spaight and Few, just across the street from Orton Park, and pretty much equidistant between Sarah's and my two Madison apartments.

I think the gallery has moved to New York--it's definitely not in Madison any more. The link above takes you to the prints from Rouault's Miserere series--really quality images.

New Post!

Of course I'll wait to update this damn thing until the end of the semester, when all the shit I've been putting off for the last few weeks and months is cascading down on me like a fountain of lukewarm Coors Light.

After Tuesday, things will be a little less hectic, but frankly I'm just looking ahead to the end of the week. If anyone has any ideas about applying a psychoanalytic method of art criticism to the devotional aspects of Georges Rouault's Miserere (in particular Plate 23, Rue des Solitaires) and the pros and cons of doing so, I'd love to hear about it.
