Worthy exhibition, I surmise... but i do find that we merely interact with the obligatory artists under different project titles... whether it be klee and various other european artists enmeshed within political connotations or such as this man juxtaposed with the theme of architecture... Would it be too much to request other less well defined artists of the past as future points of reference to study? it would be an easy jump from this subject to the notions of the dandy/flaneur....

JONATHAN SUTCLIFFE the galleries, such as the National Gallery, need the revenue and publicity from blockbuster shows. These exhibitions require major artists that the public are familiar with. This Monet exhibition is also a rear opportunity to see so many of his works together.
