R.I.P. Christo

One of the giants of modern art died today, age 84. He transformed landscapes, buildings, cultural heritages, together with his wife of almost 50 years, Jeanne-Claude. When he presented his maybe greatest work, the Wrapped Reichstag, I was away doing a final-year stint in Porstmouth, my was I miffed.

Here's to a great personality, a sensitive and endlessly sensitive human being, a truly great artist.

Just saw this. He was quite the object of discussion for one of my art profs. He always seemed to think big.
Is there such a thing?
