Fight for your right to paints



The Tribune has an update on Yaacov Agam's Communication X9, which was returned to Michigan and Randolph last month. Agam is still unhappy with the restoration, which he says amounts to erasing the original (which was aging badly) and replacing it with a copy. It's good to see it back in the news, because the story's interesting if you're into the intersection of law and art, but their explanation of what happened is a bit pro forma; check out Deanna Isaacs's November column for details on what went "wrong"--the sculpture contains 1,410 different colors, and Agam thinks the restorer screwed them up--with the restoration.
