"Method of this work: literary montage. I have nothing to say only to show" --Walter Benjamin

Gemeinsamer Tod by Alfred Kubin is quite an astonishing print. A rare one too, not found often online.
It reminds of a liebestod.
I found it in Obsessions: Honore Daumier, Henry De Groux, James Ensor, Paul Gauguin, Francisco De Goya, Max Klinger, Alfred Kubin, Edvard Munch, Odilon Redon, Felicien Rops .

Guy Debord accompanied by a female with unclothed torso who is said to be Alice Becker-Ho
There’s something about this picture which is utterly appealing.

A Jester[1] (ca. 1519-20) is a tempera on panel by Marx Reichlich in the collection of the Yale University Art Gallery.
An evil clown.
See also the Laughing Fool, a painting by a Netherlandish painter (possibly Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen), which I posted a year ago[2] who also had small teeth and an excess of gum.

One lost winter, I read all issues of Domus magazine.
I found out about the Streamline Moderne building Centro de Oftalmología Barraquer (1941) in Barcelona and visited it a couple of years later. It’s a stunner and a must see for Art Deco freaks.
Next time I go to Barcelona I will be repeating a previous stroll. I will walk down the Ramblas, taking a right up to the Montjuïc Castle and descending it via the Jardí Botànic de Barcelona and the Palau Nacional (there used to be small tapa bars on the stairways there).
Last stop: the Barcelona Pavilion.
