ANNOUNCEMENT

Big News!

By Gregory Cerio

We have important news: our publisher, Don Sparacin, and I have acquired The Magazine ANTIQUES from Art News Media, LLC. We are now independent, and we intend to go places.



THE LATEST



The Glories of Gorham - A forthcoming exhibition at the Rhode Island School of Design tells the epic story of a great American silverware maker
Modern Painters Abroad - John Ruskin and the American Pre-Raphaelites
Editor’s Letter: May/June 2019 - There are some art exhibitions that transcend themselves. That is to say, the fact that the show is taking place is of greater significance than the art on view.
Harvard celebrates the Bauhaus - In his 1948 year-end report, Charles Kuhn—Harvard professor, curator of the university’s Germanic Museum (later called the Busch-Reisinger Museum), and recently discharged deputy chief of the soldiering art experts known as the Monuments Men—took the modest first step to establish an archive of Bauhaus materials.
Made in America - When the Trump presidency ends, commentators will doubtless launch into a furious round of assessment. Among the motifs in this stock-taking, a humble article of clothing is sure to take on an outsize role: the red baseball hat, machine-embroidered with the legend “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor

    There are some art exhibitions that transcend themselves. That is to say, the fact that the show is taking place is of greater significance than the art on view. Such is the case with A Tale of Two Collections, which opened in mid-March at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson and runs until June 16. The show presents the work of ten artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, Hale Woodruff, and Benny Andrews. But even with the force of their combined talent and fame, the art is of secondary importance. more...
