"Painting as agitation" -- Saul Manifesto -- from NYTs

Not for everyone, and hard to hang in the living room, but nevertheless reflective of truth.

My personal favorite, "Columbus Discovers America."

I was at US Chamber of Commerce a couple of years ago, where President Bush gave a speech, and a recently arrived refugee from Burma and I tried to decipher the heraldic shields and banners on the ceiling and walls -- Ponce de Leon, Columbus etc.

Finally we figured it out.
