the art historian's mixtape

The art gallery I work for happens to own a James Ensor painting. When I first began my job, my co-worker jokingly asked me if I wanted to Meet James Ensor. He showed me the painting in storage, and later we laughed over the song with the same name by They Might Be Giants. I'll have to admit, I like the song much better than our Ensor. The song is so silly, it's taken a little of the stuffiness out of the painting.
