It began as the GODFATHER OF MATH, evolved into the GOODFATHER OF MATH. Now this. Go figure...

Coney Island Goes to San Antonio

________________________________________________________________________________________________


explores 150 years of Coney Island

I hope this exhibit
includes the Coney Island
image that elevated me
to "part-time" docent at
Los Angeles County
Museum of Art. 


Paul Cadmus
Coney Island
(1934)
Decadence dominates the image
but I would always point out
the man who fell asleep
reading about HITLER.

After all, it was only 1934
and the Fuhrer was not
exactly front-page news
but the magazine
on the man's chest
is the counterpoint
to everything else
in this extraordinary
painting.
