The drawings are from Kandinsky and Nijinsky and these can be seen online in an exhibition at the MoMa called Inventing Abstraction.  The online exhibitionitself is a work of art, and can be enjoyed here . http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2012/inventingabstraction/?page=connections

If you like interactive sites, this is one for you.  Beware of the time thief it is though,

I lose hours finding stuff like this.  Totally unproductive but so fascinating that I don’t give a hoot.  It will enrich me and that is how I justify it to myself! Better than chocolate and less harmful than wine, but equally as addictive.  I must have some level of addictive personality I think.

    Dear Writer,
    I started getting your blog about a week ago, and wanted to say, you have a way with you; a lovely, relaxing gentleness that is very soothing. I thank you for writing. I will learn from you, of that I’m sure.
