Met up with Marco Luccio at the NGV.

We were drawing the Louis Duffy 'Christ evicting the money lenders'.

He suggested that we may look Tooker's work.

I Googled it but was not overly taken with it.

We talked about New York, and he suggested we look for the film Manhatta.

Manhatta was a collaboration between painter Charles Sheeler and photographer Paul Strand.

It is on YouTube. And we have viewed it.

Extraordinary! What a wonderful medium YouTube is!

Also he suggested we look at the Morgan Library/Museum in New York. Definitely on our visiting list.
