And in New York at the MOMA is an exhibition of Magritte. Being from Houston I’ve seen a lot of his work, but this exhibit offers new images to me and every other fan of his pieces at the Menil. I love his work: so alive and challenging to our logic; happy, yet haunting.
And finally “Place Pigalle” by Joseph Cain from the FBI’s online gallery of stolen art. Perhaps mostly dealers and crime writers browse it regularly, but maybe you can be the sharp-eyed civilian who spots a hot masterpiece.
