Frederic Church’s Olana on the Hudson - "Almost an hour this side of Albany is the Center of the World,” wrote Frederic Edwin Church (1826– 1900) to his friend sculptor Erastus Dow Palmer. He added: “I own it.” Church, preeminent among the Hudson River school painters, was referring to Olana, his magnificent “Persian” style mansion and the surrounding 250 mountaintop acres of landscape he subtly designed.
The Other O’Keeffe - Overshadowed by her sister Georgia, Ida Ten Eyck O’Keeffe gets her day in the sun with an exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art
Star Power - A Pawnee war club offers an object lesson in interpreting Native American art
The Met Spreads Its Wing - The exhibition Art of Native America brings this country’s first art to the newly invigorated American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Curious Objects: Introducing the New Antiquarians - At the Winter Show’s 2019 sapphire jubilee, Curious Objects hosted a panel discussion with four young mavens of the antiques world—Michael Diaz-Griffith, associate executive director of the Winter Show; Emily Bode, designer and founder of fashion label Bode; Carleigh Queenth, vice president and specialist head of the European ceramics and glass department at Christie’s, New York; and Ben Miller—in the Park Avenue Armory’s resplendent Herter Brothers–designed Board of Officers Room.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor-in-Chief

    We moved offices recently—and you all know what a joy moving can be. We’re now on the far west side of Midtown Manhattan, the neighborhood where two of New York’s great fictional characters resided: Nero Wolfe, the ingenious, orchid-fancying, and largely housebound private detective, and his much more dynamic legman and chronicler, Archie Goodwin. Both would be amazed—or, perhaps more likely, appalled—by the glass-sheathed towers of the Hudson Yards project now rising near the site of their old brownstone. Then again, nobody appreciated the urge to turn a buck more than Wolfe. more...


WHERE TO GO,
WHAT TO SEE

We’re already looking forward to the 65th anniversary edition of the Winter Show, held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City. The show opens with a glamorous soirée on January 17th and for the next ten days some 70 of the world’s leading dealers in the fine and decorative arts works that date from ancient times to the present day.
