The Cross-Eyed Mutt
By the author of The Initiates and Lulu Anew! A raucous satirical comedy that asks: Who decides what makes a work of art worthy of being in a major museum? Fabian is supervisor at the Louvre. He loves his job. He also loves Mathilde. When it comes time, she presents him to her family in their vast country house and not without some apprehension, as the Benion clan is a bit special. The fact that Fabian works in the Louvre is a welcome coincidence, since they just found in the attic a painting by an ancestor in the nineteenth century. It's a sorry representation of a cross-eyed mutt. What is the value? ask the Benion. Is this an eyesore or a masterpiece? Fabian, pretty embarrassed, punts on the question. So for the Benion, case closed, if it's not an eyesore then no doubt it has its place on the walls of the Louvre!
