A stitch in wartime

By Stacy C. Hollander and Annette Gero

The American Folk Art Museum presents a fascinating collection of quilts made by men at arms.


THE LATEST

On the hunt at the Amon Carter - On October 7, the Amon Carter Museum of Ameri­can Art in Fort Worth, Texas, welcomes a traveling exhibition that the organizers deem to be the first of its kind: a major survey of hunting and fishing in American art from the early nineteenth century to the start of World War II.
India and the arts and crafts movement at the Bard Graduate Center - The name Kipling is synonymous with British India in the nineteenth century, but a new exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York hopes to foster associations beyond Gunga Din, Kim, and Peachey Carnehan.
The ICA in Los Angeles opens with a bang - Martín Ramírez (1895–1963) was an itinerant Mexi­can laborer who, homeless in California in the 1930s and arrested for vagrancy, was diagnosed with schizophrenia and spent the rest of his life confined to state psychiatric institutions. Ramírez was also, by many lights, one of the more brilliant artists of the twentieth century.
Handle with Care #3 - A new installment of our web-only column on ceramics and glass.
Seeking asylum - As antique furniture goes, it is not much to look at: four simply turned legs; a drawer; two square wells, for ink and pounce. Despite its diminutive stature, however, the desk is a fitting centerpiece for the show, for it was, in its time, the platform for dramatic change.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor-in-Chief

    Lately I have spent a great deal of time in Hudson, New York—a town whose ongoing revival (as noted countless times here and elsewhere) has been led by the antiques trade. But antiques aren’t the only story here, and in trying to understand the place I was put in mind of an encounter Henry James had with Hudson in the autumn of 1904. more...
