Good show from Condo, the darling of good bad weird painting. He paints with verve, and has funny frames, and brown walls, and the paintings were good in the very rich gallery off picadilly. Bit boring to see more naked people, and the smart people at the opening averted their eyes from the willies, and the screaming popes. He doesn't quite pull off greatness, there's a little stiffness in his freedom to use all art history, but not to make any, Picabia died a while ago.

But carping aside, it's a good show.
