Go see great art

I am still amazed by the Internet’s power of connection.  Some great folks that put together a wonderful art website called artsy.net ran across my paper on Egon Schiele’s “dead Mother” series of paintings. They contacted me and I checked out their site. It’s wonderful. Go visit artsy.net.  This is a link to their Shiele page. You can lose yourself in the site discovering artists you love but never met before. Gourguechon_Dead_MotherI_002 AS for me and Schiele, I have never encountered something that begged for psychoanalytic interpretation as much as those paintings.  I still remember the sense of shock when I first saw them at MOMA many years ago.  You can read my paper here .
