FeministArt-TheyFeministArt-KahnFeministArt-EmpressOne of the works presented at C24’s “Transfigured” exhibition was Abortion Goddess, by Jaishri Abichandani.

Would that the 50 million+ babies aborted in the US (since 1973) had their own #Me Too movement.

Would that feminists understood, that ultimate power and liberation are from the Spirit — rather than reducing it to just their body, which only leads to new forms of slavery.

On this Day of Remembrance, the effects of radical liberalism and nationalism (including Zionism) continue to plague society — with people unwilling/able to see their wrongheadedness, and be oriented to a more truthful way of living?

Gallerist David Gill shared a pic of a chair that he and Daniel Libeskind created.

OurikaThe engraving, made by French/German printmaker Alfred Johannot (c.1830), around the time of Delecroix’s: Liberty Leading the People, depicts a black Catholic nun in Morocco dialoguing with a ‘liberty’ scholar. She seems to be skeptical of his notions (see her eyes and hands), perhaps having found true freedom and enlightenment in communion with her God.

Coincidentally, there is presently an exhibition at Columbia University on the role played by black women in Modern 19th-century French art: Posing Modernity: The Black Model From Manet and Matisse to Today, at the Wallach Art Gallery.

GOK-NYBGThe City of New York is seeking female candidates, to honor with a statue in Central Park. We recommend the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), who spent several decades of her long and fruitful life in NYC — and as a true feminist worked hard, was excellent at what she did, and helped men to be better.

The photo is from a recent Georgia O’Keeffe talk at the New York Botanical Garden.

NYBG-GOK1NYBG-GOK2In 1939, the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe spent 3 months painting in Hawaii, as part of an artist series commissioned by the Dole Pineapple Company. Two of her Hawaii pictures (out of 20 made) were used in print ads for the company. The New York Botanical Garden has recently brought together the fruits of O’Keeffe’s time in Hawaii, in a show that runs through October 28, 2018.NYBG-GOKEspecially noteworthy are the “Waterfall” paintings, which seem more personal, prefiguring O’Keeffe’s important “Black Place” paintings of the 1940s.

Sotheby's-SafeThe man’s “I Am Safe” t-shirt belies the proliferation of copies and fakes being sold by NYC auction houses these days. Copies and fakes have always been around, what’s new is the extent to which auction houses are centering their businesses on bogus lots, while opting not to present more legitimate works.

Degas-ThreeDancersDegas-LesDessinsEdgar Degas (1834-1917), a leading figure in modern art, was an innovator — but very much rooted in tradition. His contribution to the world of art offers access to the world of grace, for the sensitive observer.

Several years after Degas’ passing his friend Henri Riviere (also a painter and printmaker) reproduced 100 Degas works, in a tour-de-force project of 250 portfolios. Woodside Fine Art has one of the portfolios — with 77 original reproductions. Subjects include the full gamut of Degas’ oeuvre: from ballet dancers to bathers; cabaret singers to cotton traders.
