MOST RECENT

Long backstory: I follow someone on IG who has reignited my love of poetry. He brilliantly pairs art with lyrics & poems, and the posts truly get to me. After one such post, I pulled out my old copy of K. Rexroth & have been a bit obsessed with a couple of poems (one too long to write out here). Today in printmaking class when I wasn't sure what image to monoprint, I attempted pears & pear blossoms- an image from the poem- for pairing. I didn't capture the essence of it, but did love that it inspired me. Until my next attempt I submit the two monoprints, a Marsden Hartley painting from 1936 ("three pears, grapes and white flowers") and the poem: "All night rain falls through fog. I lie awake, restless on a twisted pillow. Fog horns cry over the desolate water. How long ago was it, That night with the pear blossoms Quivering in the pulsating moonlight? I am startled from sleep By the acrid fleshy odor of pear blossoms. Somewhere in the world, I suppose, You are still living, a middle-aged matron, With children on the verge of youth."----Kenneth Rexroth #pleaseswipepictures #monoprinting #printmaking #kennethrexroth #marsdenhartley #pearblossoms #stillife#nationalpoetrymonth

Loved seeing this selection of works from the legendary private collection of Myron Kunin, on view (as a long term loan that will likely turn into a donation) at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Over a span of four decades, Myron Kunin assembled one of the most important private collections of American Modernism from the first half of the 20th century. It covers the diverse artistic styles and movements of the time. He had an incredible eye and a famous irrepressible love of the chase after great art...known too ,for his world class collection of African art . #myronkunincollection #myronkunin. 1.

Some gems from the Princeton Art Museum. The museum is excellent - pretty much all gems. These are a few from the painting gallery that were especially memorable. The one by Walt Kuhn is my personal fav. #waltkuhn #edourdvuillard #philipguston #marsdenhartley #frankstella #albertbierstadt #miltonavery #princetonartmuseum

Four from “Outliers and American Vanguard Art” at #nationalgalleryofart #washingtondc #Jimnutt #marsdenhartley #morrishirshfield from the web page: “focuses on three periods over the last century when the intersection of self-taught artists with the mainstream has been at its most fertile. It is the first major exhibition to explore how those key moments, which coincided with periods of American social, political, and cultural upheaval, challenged or erased traditional hierarchies and probed prevailing assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture. Bringing together some 250 works in a range of media, the exhibition includes more than 80 schooled and unschooled artists and argues for a more diverse and inclusive representation in cultural institutions and cultural history.” #painting #gallery #arthistory

Emily Nelligan Cranberry Island Drawings closes today, the 14th - open til 5:00. For over fifty years Nelligan, now 93, worked summers off Mt. Desert on Great Cranberry Island with her beloved late husband Marvin Bileck - their first cottage was $50 for the season, affordable for her - who supported herself by babysitting - and her Queens College professor husband. She responded to and recorded her motifs - land, water, sky, sun, moon, light and air - with charcoal on writing paper. The results have a deep spiritual - some say mystical - quality, and remind us of a simpler time and our fundamental connection with the natural world. #emilynelligan #cranberryisland #charcoaldrawing #charcoaldrawings #marsdenhartley @alexandregallery

Carl Sprinchorn (1887 - 1971)
14” x 11", SWAGGERING LABORER, watercolor on paper, signed upper right, c. 1940.
.
This drawing is available for sale. Look at our other postings. Inquiries invited.
.
A landscape painter who combined modernism and realism, Carl Sprinchorn was born in Sweden, and spent much of his life in New York state but is most associated with Maine. Between 1937 and 1952, he lived near Shin Pond in Maine's North Woods, painting the life of Maine lumberjacks, hunters, and river drivers.
He arrived in New York City from Sweden at age 16 and enrolled in the New York School of Art where he was a long-time student of Robert Henri and also studied with William Merritt Chase. Reportedly Henri regarded Sprinchorn as one of his most talented students. He had his first exhibition in 1916, and this show included paintings of the ballet.
.
He and Marsden Hartley were boyfriends. They met in New York in 1916, painted in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and Ogunquit, Maine, and in 1919, went to California together.
.
In 1995, the Carl Sprinchorn Admiration Society formed (www.sprinchorn.com), a loose-knit band of artists and others devoted to preserving his memory. His works are part of many important museums including the Metropolitan, Whitney, Brooklyn among others.
