    It seems the reviwer is an accomplished name-dropper - with absolutely no clue who those people were and what they did.

    I recognize most of the names, and I read and write academic criticism for a living, and I enjoy some of it, but that was just sophomoric.

    Roberta Smith is evidently competing for the Bulwer-Lytton prize.

    What I found funny is that the chair certainly has a fancy name, I was expecting a beautifully wooden carved or built chair, and then I chacked the link provided and found out it was a plastic chair that many here in Mexico have as lawn furniture......go figure!

    Yes, the Saarinen chair was mass produced and imitated in many forms, and I always think of them as the 1970s chairs my grandfather had in his office, but they really did define an era.

    as you might know Penn was married to Lisa Fonsagrives, and she was from Sweden..
    'as a result he gave the Swedish state about 150 images some years ago..

    many (about 100) was exhibited here in Denmark, and I had the good fortune to see them..
    I have never seen such beautiful work (Sally Mann excluded)- especially his large Platinum prints..

    I think I could find a small space for one of theese Platinum prints here in my home...(If I looked hard enough)

    Isn't a critic one who is gifted with verbal diarrhea, mental masturbation, vaccinated with a phonograph needle and fluent in the skills of communication? tim
