It provides a schedule of past and current exhibitions as well as a link to the main gallery website... Essentially it is a "living" catalog that is updated constantly with new information and visuals."

DECIPHERING BECKMANN By Charlie Finch
In 1937, Max Beckmann shipped the first of his monumental triptychs, Departure, to his New York dealer Curt Valentin. Valentin asked Beckmann to write an essay explaining the piece. Beckmann replied, "Remove this painting or return it to me, my dear Valentin. If people cannot understand it themselves with the help of their own inner world, it makes no sense to show the thing. . . . It can speak only to those who carry within them, consciously or unconsciously, a metaphysical code close to mine." morearrow
