Felice Casorati, Portrait of Silvana Cenni (1922)
One of the painting I analyzed in my “mini-thesis” on Magic Realism for my high school exit exam (too many years ago sigh).

Peter Brook, NOVEMBER Late Afternoon (1976-77)
This lithograph has just made me realize how ignorant I am on the history of this artistic medium. I am still in the XIX century, I have a lot to catch up!
Willem de Kooning, Landscape, abstract (c. 1949)
Yeah, I think the current exhibition on Pollock and the New York School at Palazzo Reale, Milan is worth at least a visit (even two!).
Other pictures here.

Women do it (aka abstract expressionism) better!
