ARTISTIC CONUNDRUM: The 1949 painting entitled Loch Ness Monster and Black
Man without a Face
Our Loch Ness Monster is famed the world over, and pops up in very strange
circumstances from time to time.
Now she has surfaced at the centre of an art mystery in Italy.

He is most famous for his so-called impossible structures, such as Ascending
and Descending, Relativity, his Transformation Prints, such as Metamorphosis I,
Metamorphosis II and Metamorphosis III, Sky & Water I or Reptiles.
