Monday Morning Linkage
It's been a while since I've done a links post. So off we go for a whirl around the blogosphere:
- I once overheard a couple standing in front of a Jackson Pollock painting having a serious discussion about what it was a painting of. The man insisted that he saw a horse in the painting. The woman couldn't make it out. With a little help from Photoshop, Edward Winkleman makes the case for one Pollock work as a self-portrait. You determine how persuasive the argument is.
- Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you know by now what's happened at the Getty. Given the terms of Munitz's departure, I predict that the story isn't over.
- Planning to make a purchase on the secondary art market? Be sure to do your homework first.
- It's been, what, four or five years now that art blogs have been around? It's hard to believe that some people still don't get it.
- All hail the well conceived hoax.
- I've always wondered what happened when pieces donated for charity auctions don't sell. (Updated.)
- And, finally, what do I have to do to get a dinner invitation?
