"A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that’s just how the world will come to an end: to the general applause of wits who believe it’s a joke."

Cy Tombly. Tiznit. 1953.
I had the fortune of seeing this for the first time in person. The paint was so thick and savage looking. One of the first paintings I didn’t want to stop looking at. Turns out Cy Tombly died this past July. RIP.
