Featured artwork 1954, Jean Dubuffet Dubuffet's heady experience in the country and rejection of art education is evident in this painting. The heavily textured surface depicts a cow, rendered in the child-like innocence of patients held in psychological facilities. The uninhibited, savage approach to the canvas exemplifies the concepts of what Dubuffet termed Art Brut - the image seems entirely unschooled in the traditions of landscape.

ILLUSTRATION ART "To live is to war with trolls." --Ibsen The brilliance of Norman Rockwell's painting Saying Grace has always been in plain view for anyone of good will and good taste to appreciate, but since it sold at Sotheby's last week for $46 million, art critics are finally able to appreciate it as well. The sale offers us a propadeutic moment by shining a spotlight on the scoundrels who encircled Rockwell. Such moments are rare, and should not be wasted.
