Los Caprichos & Los Desastres de la guerra. I saw these works in person as a teenager and they made quite an impression on me.

I saw it when it was at the Museum of Modern Art many years ago. The memory of the work has become stronger than the immediate impression it made on me.

I was familiar with the work from an exhibition of Kienholz’ work at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art and then assisted him in the restoration of that work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
