In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Thanks, Donald! Several of us were looking forward to this. It was terrific of you to remember!

At risk of being pedantic, allow me to point you out that Anglada-Camarasa's name is not Herman but Hermen, an abreviation of Hermenegildo, his 'real' name.

Just been browsing Serov's stuff. A joy.

Many thanks, Donald.

ortega -- I know his real name and thought about using it for the post and link label. But, like the first name of Zegna, the Italian men's fashion fellow, it's a word difficult for English speakers/readers to wrap tonges/minds around. So I used the short version, the spelling of which I'll now correct on the list. Thank you for noticing.

Donald - there are that many already? Impressive. You do have enough for a book, even if you don't hold a couple more in your sleeve.

If I see it bound, I'll buy it.

Since you're fixing spelling errors, can I remind you to change "MamAntova" to "MamOntova" in your essay on Serov?

Posted by: Tatyana on December 4, 2008 10:54 AM

Tatyana -- Fixed, thanks.

By way of thanks for the lovely stuff you post, may I draw your attention this statuary, standing in a glen in the hills of Southern Scotland? It's there for anyone to visit.

Donald, humor me and take a look at the work of Lovis Corinth, a German painter who's dates were approximately 1865 - 1925. You may be put off by his sloppiness but there is tremendous vitality in him, IMO.

ricpic -- I took a quick peek at his stuff on Google. Not totally my cuppa tea, but I won't rule him out, either. What I need to do is see some of his stuff in person. My painter posting strategy is to rely on the accident of what I notice in museums and art books along with a large dose of whimsy.
