We admit that our nasty little sneak attack upon the unwitting Otto Mannix Report was an attempt to overwhelm the Report's Art History Department with a counter gallery of our own. Fair enough, the Report's response has got us off guard and this return fire is an attempt to buy time while we reach into our wheelhouse. To make this a fair fight we propose that we limit our exchanges to 20th century Painting and Sculpture. And then we escalate from there!
