Well, Nina, from my recollection of the Pompidou, the "seascapes" you describe are highly appropriate hangings in what I consider to be something of a sham architectural design: not sure whether the architect had his or her tongue in cheek or was simply sticking it out at a gullible public. Not to start the first 21st-century Franco-American art war, but I give the MOMA much higher marks for both design and content than anything I have seen at the Pompidou.
