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

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.
Philadelphia Stories - Introducing a new section in which curators discuss ongoing research projects and other collection notes. First up, Alexandra Kirtley of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Ralston Crawford’s visions of man and machine at the Nelson-Atkins - A pioneer of precisionist painting and geometric abstraction as well as a celebrated photographer, Ralston Crawford (1906–1978) was equally fascinated by mankind and the man-made. Both subjects—and a link between Crawford’s artistic practices—are explored in the exhibition Structured Visions: The Photographs of Ralston Crawford at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

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...
