BEAUTY: Painting--Claire Milbrath

Claire Milbrath's idyllic, almost childish images of gay men in pensive intimacy are lovely. Her presentation reminds me so much of the marvelous art one often finds in children's books, particularly GOODNIGHT, MOON. Indeed, some of her rooms look like the little bunny's room in that classic book while her figures--especially faces--recall the flowing lines of Cocteau.
