Above all the classics are holding up well, it was great to see the collection of fine art tapestries shown at the Jane Kahn Gallery by Magritte, Leger, Le Corbusier, Picasso, Stuart Davies, Miro, Delaunay and Calder. The colors are as vivid as the day they were woven.
Also on show was 'Myth and Machine' a rare collection of WWI prints, lithographs, sculpture and drawings some of it was quite disturbing as in these graphics of war wound victims.
This obscure watercolor and collage by an Italian war artist represents a journey 'Volo su Vienna, 9 Agosto' 1918. A journey of horrors.
The hybrid alchemical work 'Sprache der Vogel' by Anslem Keifer is a 3 ton mixed media sculpture which translates as 'Language of the Birds'.

Spewing up every cliche in a conflated over simplification of every other art trope.
