So we're clear, I'm in New York and I have other fish to fry than constantly checking the stats of my blog.  Earlier today I went to see an academically interesting but emotionally underwhelming show at MoMA called The Birth of Abstraction, or something like that.  I was unmoved and called a friend to tell him so.

After I hung up I noticed another show, right next to the Abstraction show.   Art produced in Tokyo from 1955 to 1970 -- the time period immediately following the Allied occupation of Japan which had, in turn, immediately followed the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

It was amazing.
