THE LATEST

Living with antiques: compass points - The man who brought together the furniture and works of art in two Texas homes takes inspiration from several directions.
Growing Interests: Expanding the collections at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum - In 1926 John D. Rockefeller Jr. formally embarked on the project that would become the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation by purchasing Philip Ludwell's house of about 1775 on Duke of Gloucester Street. That acquisition, the first "antique" in Colonial Williamsburg's collection, came to play a pivotal role in the founding of what would eventually be the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.
Revisiting The Art of the Common Man - The exhibition American Folk Art: The Art of the Common Man in America, 1750–1900 was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City from November 30, 1932, through January 14, 1933. Presenting American folk art as part of a continuous artistic tradition reaching back to the eighteenth century, it was the most comprehensive, illuminating display of the subject held up to that time.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor-in-Chief

    Not long ago I came across a graphic novel by the talented artist and illustrator Leanne Shapton entitled Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry. The book tells a love story in the form of an auction catalogue. Implicit in Shapton’s inventive and engaging format for charting the course of a romance is a commentary on the tendency to attach a price tag to everyone of our possessions. more...
