TAKING INVENTORY

Philadelphia Stories

By Alexandra A. Kirtley

Introducing a new section in which curators discuss ongoing research projects and other collection notes. First up, the Philadelphia Museum of Art.


THE LATEST

Treasure Island - A Q+A with Nantucket Historical Association curator Michael Harrison
Editor’s Letter: January/February 2019 - 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, orchidfancying, and largely housebound private detective, and his much more dynamic legman and chronicler, Archie Goodwin.
Lax and lost wax - Driving into Blue Hill, Maine, it’s hard to miss the eleven-foot-tall bronze statue in front of an otherwise classic New England white clapboard building on Main Street: a glorious Native American figure in full stride raises his lacrosse stick high and cradles a ball in the pocket.
Agra Culture - Today, the World Monuments Fund announced the completion of four years’ conservation work on two gardens in Agra, India.
The unexpected virgin - While in New York recently, Stan Mabry, a fine arts dealer, did a double take. He saw a painting that he had known of for many years, but only as the centerpiece among many works of art in a black-and-white photo of a Paris studio in the 1890s.

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.
