Beyond the Pleasure Principle, Comic Quotation in Contemporary American Painting!

Final chapter and index for the companion magazine to the Whiteny Museum of Art's comic art exhibition back in the 1980's.

Art appreciation on a subject I hold dear.

Enjoy!
















And a checklist of the exhibition.

I wish I could have seen it.








Talk to you soon.

"bed" I meant, despite "bad" doesn't sound entirely bad in this case :)

It's really a shame that these couldn't have been reproduced in color, there's some very interesting (and bad) things to see here. ;P

Luckily we have internet. After seeing your post I was looking for the color version of some of the works featured. And I found them!
