Book Knowledge

Entitled, 999 Art Works, this 669 page behemoth published in 2009 in Italy, has text in English, Dutch and German.

Looking through it, there were photos of Piet Mondrian's work and of Mark Rothko's. I thought I was in the realm of Mondrian but perhaps, given colour and all, the Quirky B. I call Channeling Mondrian is actually Rothko being channeled. One young miss at the gallery suggested that I call it Channeling Rothkodrian. She might be on to something.

My nemesis, Andy Warhol, rated three reproductions, so influential is he.
