Prince of Irascibles

Click on Post Title for link to Richard Prince's current show at Gagosian Paris. There is something worrying and incongruous, yet connected and timely, about the subject of the show. When you consider the passing of Hedda Sterne last week (see Post below), and the fact that she and de Kooning appear at either side of the back row of the Irascibles photograph, it seems to create a coincidental link with the Prince show. All of it seems to somehow position Sterne even more firmly as 'alone' within the group.
