William Baziotes, Woman with Mirror, about 1936

Report from Miami, December, 2012

Posted: December 10, 2012 11:51 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

It was terrific to be at INK Miami – this past Wednesday through Sunday. The days were in the 70s, sometimes cloudy, with occasional sun showers. Maps showed either twenty-one or twenty-four fairs, more or less even divided between Miami and Miami Beach.  INK Miami was at the Suites of Dorchester Hotel on Collins Avenue at 19th Street – essentially the center of the Miami Beach Art Fair World.The show was well attended, right through the days, and the visitors were knowledgeable. Several high school and college groups came through -- they were always a lot of fun to talk to and...

David Johnson (1827-1908) - "Near Buck Mountain" - pencil on paper

"Scandal"

Posted: May 07, 2012 17:04 Last Updated: | Paul G. Stein

When he wasn’t painting, Hudson River School artist David Johnson loved to draw, with confident lines on big sheets. Every once in a while his pencil traced the figure of a woman. For example, in an 1886 drawing (above), a woman in full dress looks out over a pond in the Adirondacks. In lieu of a visible expression she appears self-possessed, as though lost in thought. In the forested background, meanwhile, is seen the shadowy and skulking figure of a man. The scene can be thought of as an unintentional metaphor: hidden in the trees of the Hudson River School artists lurked passion, res...
