Degrees of separation

Degrees of separation: Recent snapshot of me at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA next to a painting by Stanton MacDonald Wright, a modern American artist and co-founder of Synchromism, an early abstract, color-based mode of painting which was the first American avant-garde art movement to receive international attention. 

Wright was the younger brother of Willard Huntington Wright, a writer and critic who gained international fame in the 1920s by authoring the Philo Vance detective novels under the pseudonym S.S. Van Dine. One of his novels, The Canary Murder Case, was filmed in 1929 and starred Louise Brooks. Of whom we are all enamored.
