  1. What a wonderful macédoine, omnium-gatherum, gallimaufry! Thank you!

  2. I saw the Isidor Kaufmann before the Bonhams auction 1-2 years ago, and since Kaufmann had long been an intriguing artist, I followed the results carefully. It sold in New York for approx USA$ 95,000, just above my maximum *cough*

    1. Oh, too bad. Just eluded your grasp eh? ; )

  3. Wow! These are amazing. I love the way they bounce off one another, randomly and yet precisely. Beautiful.

    1. Thanks so much! I have a lot of fun - randomly - collecting the images and then finding ways to order them, finding what the connections are from each piece to the next one. So great to know you noticed that. : )
