Center for Contemporary Printmaking

Paging Messrs. Durante and de Bergerac

"Nose 9'' (sugarlift acquatint and engraving), by William Kentridge, in the show "The Nose Series,'' at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, Conn., through March 19. The idea for this goes back to a satirical short story by Russian writer Nikolai Gogol written in the mid 1830s about an official in St. Petersburg whose nose leaves his face and develops a life  of its own.
