Remembering those who left us in 2016
from La misteriosa fiamma della regina Loana, Umberto Eco (1932-2016)

Shiba Inus also love Léger
Shiba Inus...can’t live with them, can’t live without them: regal, opinionated, smart, agile, stand-offish, elegant, and very expressive. Our dog is happiest eating whatever we are having, shedding on the most exquisite carpet he can find (and he will) and being front and center in every situation. Sometimes he looks cute, sometimes he strikes the Sphinx pose.

Yves Klein, 1953
