Just a very brief heads-up for London Schiele lovers:

The fantastic Women show at Richard Nagy which for the first time reunites some of the most amazing oeuvres by Schiele that are normally hidden away in private collections is only on for another day.

Yes, as always, I have ranted about the exhibition being very poorly lit, very poorly framed, hung and documented, but in the end, it's about the works, isn't it, and just like Bellmer's ingenious drawings, Schieles need to be seen face-to-face to be understood as his line work follows its own inherent logic, fragility, narrative, psychopathology and, maybe together with Alberto Giacometti's portraits, his drawings are some of the most sculptural works ever created in two dimensions.

Don't miss this. Details below. Oh, and here's a slideshow with some pictures I took when I visited the show last Friday:

(Sincere apologies for the blurred pictures, the lighting of the show as very poor but at least you get to see a few glimpses of the paper structures and textures as well.)

    Different folks like completely different sizes of coffee maker.

    When compared with other coffee maker models and sizes, the stovetop espresso maker with twelve cup capacity serves greatest for the home households with friends and families visiting often.
