The characters in Dasha Shishkin's wonderfully odd drawings at Susanne Vielmetter have phallic noses, Little Orphan Annie's blank loops for eyes, and sometimes tails and horns like the children populating the psychic terrain of Henry Darger. They are mostly women, lithe, high-heeled and elegant, in environments that have some elements in common with shops and clubs, and just as many -- stray beasts, nudity -- that don't conventionally belong there. The atmosphere in these beautifully strange tableaux is opulent, decadent, vaguely deviant.

England --A series of erotic drawings by the late John Lennon have been put on display for the first time since being seized by police 15 years ago. The 14 drawings, which show Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, making love, are being exhibited at Beatle City, a museum. Produced during the couple's honeymoon in 1969, the drawings caused a storm of controversy when they were exhibited at a London gallery in 1970 and police closed down the display.

Central Park is almost synonymous with New York. But historians have long wondered whether the city's signature park was originally conceived the way it looks today. Were the ornate colorful tiles underneath the Bethesda Terrace a vision of the original designers? What about elegant black lamps that dot the park? Now historians might finally have some clues about the park's design. Illustrations for features of Central Park and other public places in New York have resurfaced, and the city has gone to court to get them back.

A bicoastal legal battle has erupted over who owns 17 drawings by MartÃn RamÃrez, whose artworks, created while he lived in California state mental institutions until his death in 1963, now fetch six-figure sums. Is Maureen Hammond, a widowed, retired schoolteacher living in Needles, Calif., a multimillion-dollar art thief who tried to dispose of ill-gotten gains through a Sotheby's auction? Or was Hammond, 69, the appreciative and legitimate recipient of a gift of Ramirez's drawings from a psychologist who befriended the artist and was the first person to arrange for their display during the 1950s?
