The Bombing of Guernica, 1937

Posted: April 26, 2017 12:13 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

It would have been market day eighty years ago today in the small Basque town of Guernica when it was bombed by the German Luftwaffe and the Italian Aeronautica Militare. It was the first deliberate targeting of civilians by a military air force in the history of the world.   The number of dead was probably around 300 with scores of people, and as Picasso reminded us, animals, horribly injured, and the town destroyed. Within three months Pablo Picasso made a monumental work that continues to haunt us today.   Picasso’s painting, while under the protection of the Museum of Modern Ar...


Anne Ryan, Collage, 1951

ANNE RYAN COLLAGE WEEK!

Posted: April 16, 2017 11:49 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

Collages by Anne Ryan (1889-1954) date from the last five or six years of her short artistic career and for that matter, of her life. Right now they are having a moment. The piece shown here, dated 1951 and made on Douglas Howell paper, is currently on view at Rutgers University’s Zimmerli Art Museum in Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17, through May 31. It is more cubist grid than expressionist composition like those on view in the Museum of Modern Art’s Making Space: Women Artists and Postwar Abstraction, on view through August 13. In his New York Times review o...


Ben Shahn, Four Freedoms, 1941

WEST COAST REVIEW

Posted: February 11, 2017 13:07 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

We’re back from the West Coast fairs. The Portland Fine Print Fair (January 28 and 29) coincided with the museum’s Constructing Identity show of African-American Art with work by Elizabeth Catlett. Of course, it’s wonderful to have a museum as a sponsor and the curators frequented the show: Mary Chapin included our collection in her Sunday tour and her Curator’s Choice was Peggy Bacon’s The Vain Pleasures; Sara Krajewski’s Choice was Ben Shahn’s Four Freedoms with Franklin Roosevelt. Traveling north to south, Portland was followed by the Los Angeles Fine Print Fair at Bonhams, February 4 a...

LA Fine Print Fair, 2016

CALIFORNIA REPORT, JANUARY 2016

Posted: February 05, 2016 11:09 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

Los Angeles in January was as terrific as ever – OK a little cool and some much-needed rain – but still GREAT. At LACMA it was just lovely to see the Frank Gehry show (there’s never enough time!) and find the William Baziotes painting, Congo, 1954.   First there was the Los Angeles Fine Print Fair at Bonhams on Sunset Boulevard and then the Los Angeles Art Show at the Convention Center.   Fortunately we were able to start hanging at Bonhams on Thursday because we had much too much to install if everything had to be done on Friday, the day of the reception. The dark walls made every...

MIAMI REPORT

Posted: December 12, 2015 13:55 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

Finally back in NYC along with the inventory that arrived at the end of the week. It was nice to be away but it’s nice to be home too. And this time coming back to Cirkers really did feel like coming home. In Florida at the INK Miami Art Fair, 2015, we made groupings for the Urban/Industrial Scene (Peggy Bacon, Lou Barlow, Isabel Bishop, Alexander Brook, Michael J. Gallagher, Gwyneth Leech, and Angelo Pinto), American Modernism (Will Barnet, William Baziotes, Axel Horn, Louis Lozowick, Alice Trumbull Mason, Jackson Pollock, and Anne Ryan), and an Atelier 17 wall (Howard Daum, Dorothy D...
