Read Recently: An Object of Beauty

I'm in the middle of An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin. The book spans the 1990s-2000s New York City art scene, taking you into the back rooms of Sotheby's and other galleries, sneaky art deals and a young woman taking advantage of it all. I haven't talked about art much since my college days, so it's a refreshing read. Which brings me to my next point: Art Inconnu is fun to sift through, a site chronicling works by little known or forgotten artists.
