Then and Now
A CONVERSATION with
Michelle Facos and David Werner

I am not the only one who has no idea.
They did not succeed. This period is a minor blip in history of art. The American Scandinavian Foundation in organizing Luminous Modernism wants us to take another look at this period. And although these paintings will probably not remain in my memory, I do appreciate the attempt to articulate a passion for landscape; after all that is what I am trying to do in my own work.
