“Traveling to see what is around the corner”

By Eve M. Kahn

Painter, ceramist, couturier, and bon vivant—introducing the prolific Edith Varian Cockcroft


THE LATEST

Curious Objects: Reading Congress the Riot Act—Henry Highland Garnet’s “Memorial Discourse” - It’s a month of firsts. Curious Objects is taking its first steps into its second year, and this month’s episode is the first to focus on rare books dealers, Heather O’Donnell and Rebecca Romney, principals of Honey and Wax Booksellers.
Around the world with art deco - The Wolfsonian’s exhibition Deco: Luxury to Mass Market offers an overview of this new aesthetic, presenting its unfamiliar dimensions and different iterations in Europe and across the Atlantic. Art deco is primarily characterized by an emphasis on surface decoration, symmetry, angularity, and stylization. Nevertheless, it presents different nuances, depending on its national variations, which combine local traditions with modernist tendencies, drawing inspiration mostly from nature, historical precedent, abstract geometry, and exotic cultures.
Women’s work at Hawthorne Fine Art - As the cultural tides seem finally to be lifting women artists into prominence on par with their male counterparts, more and more are emerging into public view. Several museums and galleries are presenting women artist- Hawthorne Fine Art focused shows, and one of these is at Hawthorne Fine Art in New York, where you can find the selling exhibition Breaking All Bounds: American Women Artists (1825–1945).
Brothers in art and arms - Franz Marc and August Macke were both young artists—twenty-nine and twenty-three, respectively—when they first met in Munich in January 1910. Marc was Bavarian and Macke was from the Rhineland. They soon became friends and visited each other’s studios in and near Munich. They shared many affiliations, friends, and interests.
The drama of Delacroix at the Met - Though it’s a distinct handicap when a major retrospective of a great artist is missing one of his best—and certainly best-known—paintings, it says something that the exhibition Delacroix at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York loses little of its force despite the fact that July 28, 1830: Liberty Leading the People stayed home at the Louvre.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor-in-Chief

    “Do you read German?” The question was asked as my folks and I, a few weeks ago, were poking around a new shop near their home in the Hudson valley called Quittner Antiques. It almost startled me. Not because the question was out of context— we were looking at a framed print of the Brooklyn Bridge with a German inscription—but because of the tone of voice in which the young woman at the shop counter posed it: a keen, downright bushy-tailed manner that seemed to promise I can tell you all about it. more...
