Egon, Pablo, Vincent


Preparing a little montage of Schiele, Picasso, and Van Gogh, made of postcards gathered from museums in Vienna (the Leopold), Madrid (the Reina Sofia), and Amsterdam (the Van Gogh). Sadly, I’m leaving out the one on the far left (a example of Schiele’s excellently angular depiction of the human figure) since this is for my office on campus, and, well… I do my biennial mandatory harassment training, and will err on the side of caution to avoid offense, lawsuits, possibly both.

    Nice pix! Last Fall when at a scientific meeting I saw a life-changing exhibit of works by Picasso and Cocteau–“Cocteau trifft Picasso” at the Picasso Museum in Munster.
    Perhaps if you added a Michleangelo “David” postcard your display would be more clearly art and not something else?

    🙂 Or I could just put a large sign saying “This is ART!” -cvj
