Re: Weekend sketch

Yes indeed, as third-tier aesthetes go (writers) Wilde doesn't let you down. Picture of Dorian Gray is my fave...and the movie version inspired one of the greatest paintings of all time by I van Albright - its a masterful wreckage of brushwork...phrenetic physicality co-existing with obsessive hyper-realism.
"Style" is an anthill of a word when applied to this mountainous effort (and if you think Albright gave a damn about Wilde or the damn movie, you're missing the whole point).
