SURREALIST SCULPTURE SHOPPING

Love writing little updates on what's happening and what to buy for the FT's How To Spend It magazine. 

This latest about Paul Kasmin's show of Max Ernst's sculptures is my favourite yet, probably because it had me looking at photos of Ernst with Peggy Guggenheim and imagining the Left Bank in the 1920s: howtospendit.ft.com/art/maxernst.

Julien Levy's 1944 NYC exhibition 'The Imagery of Chess'.
