I am sorry to report that I have been suffering from some sort of a stomach bug for the past week or so. It may even have contributed to the bleakness of my report on "The Medici" last week. As I think it unfair to continue to take out my negative emotions on helpless pictures and sculpture, I have decided to foreswear reporting on the art scene for the next few weeks – or until I have this bug of mine firmly in the rear-view mirror. Think of it as the summer vacation I never got around to taking.
I do have a small amount of reading matter to offer – written not by me, but by several of my readers.
