Paris in Berlin

Wow, déjà vu all over again. Picked up this book on the Rausch Collection in Frankfurt and it was like being swept back into the living room with Les and Milly Paris in Wellington. The way the work is hung, the paintings stacked against the walls, the eclectic mix of content and artist all strike the same chord. We remember when we curated a sampling from Les and Milly’s collection for the City Gallery we got a panorama shot of them sitting together amongst their treasures. No doubt about it, the Rauschs would get the same shock of recognition from that photograph as we got from theirs.
