Frohe Weihnachten!

Johann Dieter Wassmann, untitled, Dessau, 1895. Albumen silver print, 18 x 23 cm

Always the first with new technology, and saddened in the knowledge that once again this year I have faint chance of getting around to posting Christmas cards to MuseumZeitraum’s many friends, I have decided to experiment by sending greetings harnessing the latest in communications awareness. So here’s a warm cheerio this holiday season to you and yours, via Google-alert. Knowing full well that every damn one of you has a Google-alert on yourself (what a vain lot we are in the art world - as Sarah Thornton will attest to), if you clicked through to see whose company you're keeping in the blogosphere after receiving your alert, happy holidays from all of us here at MuseumZeitraum! And as long as you’re here - gathered together on this cold winter’s night (unless you're still in Miami) - how about joining in the festive moment by adding a greeting down below.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all… Gute Nacht.

Sophie,

Only you, my dear, could come up with such a cynical idea, and make it appear so thoroughly charming. It got me here, though, didn't it. Thanks for all your patience and support this year. I'm still marooned in Australia, but I must say it's a rather pleasant place to ride out this nuclear winter the financial community has wrought on us.

The museum is looking fabulous.

To you and yours...

Tschüss,

Jeff

Sophie,

Looking forward to catching up in Paris over the holidays.

Paris s'enflamme. Oui?

Love to all,
Abigail
