Van Gogh’s Best Bed

Bertie and I went to the Art Institute Chicago today. A breathtaking collection of art. The AIC must have had incredibly rich patrons to acquire a whole roomful of Monets,  alongside Gauguins, Picassos, Miros,  – and I didn’t even go to see the old masters. My only quibble is that some American artists like Hopper and Pollock are underrepresented.

Bertie loves Van Gogh.

You can see Bertie felt quite at home.

A Grand Day Out

Paris in the sunshine.

And another sandwich gone missing!

Paris in the rain

Dreary day. Bertie’s nipped off to Paris, but the weather’s no better there…

Just p...ing in the rain...

Next to Godliness?

Guess what’s wrong with this picture? No, it’s not Bertie. Try again.

Nighthawks. 1942 Hopper. AIC.
Ever seen a street this clean?

If a cluttered desk
is the sign of a cluttered mind,
what is the significance
of a clean desk?
