Laboratory Still Life 1 (detail)
As a child, I liked it so much when my dad took my sister and I to the chemistry laboratory where he worked. Strange odors in the corridors, beakers of bubbles and smoke, abstract notations on the blackboard, secret complicated experiences. And – in the humble opinion of the young girl I was – the building's architecture that housed the laboratory was a masterpiece.
