What do art and football have in common? More than you think

The Arrival of a Packet-Boat, Evening

The Harbor of Dieppe

{These two painting are two of my most favorites, and hang opposite each other in the grand West Gallery of the Frick Collection.}

This story is amazing. I'm fortunate enough to know both Max and John, and knowing them makes the whole situation even funnier.

Turner is one of my absolute favorites, and having Max's painting here will be icing on this black and gold saint-shaped cake!

Sweet, sweet victory!
