Max Ernst Retrospective at Albertina in Vienna

Posted in Curiosa & Forteana, Exhibitions / Openings / Signings, Eyecandy by Suzanne on February 20th, 2008 | BBC Wikipedia

Two scenes from Une semaine de bonté by Max Ernst, 1933

Max Ernst - anachronistic collagist genius who inspired talented modern artists like Colette Calascione or Claudia Drake - is the focus of a retrospective that opened today in Vienna - city of my eeriest dreams and sweetest nightmares. Oh, how I miss thee!

Until April 27, 2008, the venerable Albertina - in close cooperation with the Max Ernst Museum in Brühl/DE - will show the original illustrations of Max Ernst's wondrous book Une semaine de bonté.

This is the first time in almost 75 years that these hauntingly beautiful works are presented to the public.

ART Magazine feature

Get Ernst's Une Semaine De Bonté: A Surrealistic Novel in Collage published by Dover. It's a classic. I swear you won't regret it.

4 Random Things That I Find Strangely Hot Today

Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab in Moby Dick

i) Daniel Day-Lewis' legs/leather boots in There Will Be Blood.

ii) Gregory Peck's scar and bleached hair in Moby Dick. In fact, I don't think any male actor has ever looked hotter than Peck in the role of Ahab.

iii) Chester Bennington's front teeth. But that's really it.

iv) Robert Smith's voice in Lovesong.
