City Folk

By Elizabeth V. Warren

A new exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum explores the relationship between commerce and folk art in old New York


THE LATEST

Hail, Columbia! - America’s oldest steamboat heads for a new life on the Hudson River
City Folk - A new exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum explores the relationship between commerce and folk art in old New York
A Fresh Look at a Few Old Pastels - Henrietta Johnston’s portraits of Colonel John Moore and his wife, Frances Lambert Moore
A new book on the art and life of sculptor Daniel Chester French - The first comprehensive biography of the pre-eminent American sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850-1931) is now out. French—whose works include the statues of the Minute Man in Concord, Massachusetts, and Alma Mater at Columbia University in New York—has long deserved a broad and in-depth exploration, and historian Harold Holzer’s Monument Man: The Life and Art of Daniel Chester French (Princeton Architectural Press, $35) has been eagerly anticipated.
Five Leaves Left - It’s not often you get to celebrate the 150th anniversary of a twig. Yet that is exactly the opportunity that presented itself this past October 13. On that date, back in the year 1868, Sophia Thoreau leaned over a sprig of five shagbark hickory leaves and inscribed them, in indelible ink, with some lines from a poem by her brother Henry.

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...
