Just in Time: Josef Albers at the Morgan

posted on 15 Oct 2012 22:22 by Sara Spink

Anyone who has taken a painting class is likely familiar with the exercise of creating value studies, strips of tonal values ranging from dark to light. Having done so granted me an immediate familiarity with the preparatory studies comprising this insightful exhibition evidencing painter Josef Alber's creative process.

NYBG: Monet's Garden

posted on 30 Jul 2012 02:46 by Sara Spink

This evolving tribute to Claude Monet proffers a new way of seeing the artist and his work. Positioning his gardens not only as the inspiration behind some of his best-known paintings but as veritable works of art in themselves, the exhibition delves into Monet's deliberate aesthetic creation of his gardens and recounts several anecdotes showing that he effectively curated these natural spaces. ...
