Down Memory Lane

Somebody just asked me about a print of this ...

My guess is that Hank Paulson started screaming around the beginning of 2008 and didn't stop til he handed the reins to Geithner the next spring.  But I bet he still wakes up in the middle of the night with chills.

I suppose I should include this image too ...

Just so we're clear.

A Francis Bacon classic titled, predictably, The Screaming Pope.

And just so we're pulling all the loose ends together, take a look at this ...

Both of which were taken from the image of the peasant woman on the Odessa Steps taking a bullet through the eye in Battleship Potemkin.

Wow.  Art history.  Goosebumps to be walking the same road as Francis Bacon.  I am not worthy.
