Weekend 253.0 (Campo dei Fiori)

Rose Garden(1) David Gelernter has an excellent article in the Wall Street Journal (When Modern Art Came to America) behind the paywall that warrants closer scrutiny over a cup of coffee or cappuccino.

1939: Lost World of Fair by Gelernter is still one of my favorite books.

(2) John Steele Gordon also reviews A Grand Complication by Stacy Perman this weekend in the Wall Street Journal. His article is also behind the paywall (so maybe that coffee needs a croissant).

Gordon wrote Empire of Wealth: The Epic History of American Economic Power which is available on the Limestone Roof bookshelf.
