In regards to that, Tom Wolfe's slim little book, THE PAINTED
WORD would make an excellent companion-piece. It is a very
funny & irreverent look at modern art & the
appreciation thereof & as far as I can verify it it is
wickedly accurate. It's one of those few books that made me
laugh out loud. (The "Boho Dance" still cracks me up when I
think about it.)
