Supertouch guest blogger ERIC WHITE implores all serious art fans to get to the MET before October 14th to take in a monumental show of pure classical painting force by the legendary talent NEO RAUCH. Created especially for the landmark exhibit by the genre-defying East German painter (are they Surrealist, Pop, Post-Pop, Post-Modern?), the large-scale oil paintings find their place easily in the grand palace of high art, with each theatrically staged canvas revealing the artist's classical influences, examples of which can be found throughout the museum itself in the various wings of European painting. The real high point of Rauch's momentus new collection, though, is his amazing use of color and texture which are the hallmark of his highly developed technique. Few people on Earth can paint like this, don't miss a chance to see it up close. HAVE A LOOK:
