* About page 13. The repetition of the same image in four compartments (almost identical except for the presence of the seated man in the upper left section only) is itself highly unusual in Magritte's work. A.N. Girling, in an article in The Stereoscopic Society Bulletin, has pointed out that 'cross-eyed' viewing of the two pairs of images, and especially the lower pair, produces a strongly three-dimensional stereoscopic effect, which because of a slight sideways displacement of the images he believes must have been deliberate. However, Mme Magritte writes (letter of 20 January 1977) that she never heard her husband speak of stereoscopes, that he took no interest in the bizarre pairs of photographs of a stereoscopic kind and that the family never possessed a stereoscope. It may be added that the table and stools have also been shifted downwards in the lower pair of images, and one looks more down onto them.
Though the painting was reproduced by Julien Levy in 1936 as 'Now you don't', Magritte confirmed that the original title was 'Man with a Newspaper'. When asked whether it could have any connection with Bergson's theories of time on account of its repetition of an image and the fact that a man is present in one compartment but is absent from the other three, he replied (31 July 1965): "Man with a Newspaper" ... like my other paintings, is concerned with the description of a thought combining forms (visual) drawn from the tangible world - but in such a way that mystery is evoked. ...... "Man with a Newspaper" is the image of a thought and the latter does not correspond to a philosophical doctrine. Bergson's theories describe ideas; what I paint contains no idea. I paint something to be seen: "an image in itself' which is the image of a thought "in itself". This thought (like all mystery) defies interpretation. However, it is possible to speak of this thought, to comment on the image which describes it. To do this well requires inspiration.
Though this picture was exhibited at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in 1931-'32 with the date 1930, it was first reproduced in the issue of Variétés dated 15 January 1929. Magritte, in the letter quoted above, confirmed that it was painted in 1928. David Sylvester, who dates it late 1928, says that X-ray photographs of the rather larger picture 'The Annunciation' 1930 (114,5 x 146,5 cm) show the presence of a different composition underneath, including what appears to be the same figure of a seated man reading a newspaper.
* It maybe worthwhile mentioning that the suggestion of a stereoscopic effect is also caused by the more dark shadows depicted in the interiors in the right upper and lower part of the painting.[KvG]
'Collection diary', 2004, published by JRP/Ringier Kunstverlag AG - € 7,50 new
* Sympathetic diary of curator Bob Nickas as collector for one year. Every month an art piece of (yet?) non-stars is purchased by him. Develops quickly a collector's mentality of chasing artworks and being-the-first, though. Nevertheless he does not belie his nature by putting his most favorite piece on the cover of this book. It is a drawing of Dave Muller with circles of watercolour and two text balloons saying: "This show sucks!" and "Yeah, change it!" Bob Nickas has this hanging on his wall and reads this everytime he is on the next job of curating a show.

ULAY AND ABRAMOVIC
'Relation Work and Detour', 1980
24,6 x 23 cm, monography with many photos, edition 2500, 236 pp.
* Remarkable book about the artists attitudes and sympathies for mysticism raised by personal confrontations with archaic cultures and physical-mental challenges created by their own conceptual recipies. This is "A vital book" as is stated by the artists in the colophon. This well worked out monography gives an impressive view of what the concepts of their performances was all about, mainly due to the extensive amount of photos of various moments of each performance. Printed in a comparatively large edition yet this book is not very easy to find. Very good copy.
