Magritte at LACMA


Here's my review of the Magritte & Contemorary Art show at the LA County Museum of Art. It's been online for a week, but the paper version just hit the streets today.

Pictured above is "The Cripple" from Magritte's very brief "Vache" period in 1948, when he abandoned his familiar style and made all these loose, goofy paintings. They're the highlight of the show for me.
