What began last July is beginning to take shape, and fascinating new contributors within 20th century art history are appearing. Before and after presenting my paper "Medieval Pop: Warhol's Byzantine Iconography" at Oxford 8-9 January, I had precious time in London to take advantage of the invaluable resources that make 26+ hours of sleepless travel to get there worth it. Independent bookshops offered out of print editions (that were also reasonable) and the Courthault Collection provided the opportunity to see critical Kandinsky and Gabrielle Munter paintings.
