For those interested in Fragonard, especially if you are in the US, the Frick collection has moved into the old Breuer Whitney building while the mansion is being renovated for the next few years. It is the first time to see the Fragonards, the best collection in the United States, isolated as individual works of art as opposed to being components in the room design. Items from the Frick collection rarely, if ever, leave the building so it’s a unique opportunity to see them somewhere different, if only a few blocks away.

Lullaby II by Frank Moore
Here's the Whitney Museum's description:
Painter and AIDS activist Frank Moore created two paintings based on the theme of the lullaby: Lullaby I and Lullaby II. While both are surreal images centered on a crisp, white-linen covered bed whose white sheets become a vast landscape, the former depicts a herd of tiny buffalo amid snowflakes while the latter shows polar bears feeding on fish. Instead of portraying the bed solely as a site of sickness and death—as many artists did during the AIDS crisis—Moore here imbues it with a multiplicity of references, from the innocence and fantasy of childhood to the state of environmental degradation in America. Indeed, the bleak, wintry vision of Lullaby II may reflect Moore’s belief that the AIDS epidemic and the ecological crisis were intimately related. As he stated, “I believe you cannot have healthy people in an unhealthy environment and you can’t have a healthy environment where unhealthy—greedy, exploitative—people predominate.”

Very true, R104. It's a very pretty portrait. I like the curve of the edge of the cape on the right side. The inability of the artist to depict the human body in a completely realistic way (ie. the stiffness and stylization) is part of its charm, though the very thin torso is a bit distracting. I was looking at John Singer Sargent's portrait of Henry James on the NPG's website and just happened to come across this painting.

An Aside: I actually like the OP painting. But why the hell do people ice Angel Food Cakes? I've never understood that. They're meant to be enjoyed simply, with a bit of fruit and fresh chocolate sauce or whipped cream. It defeats the purpose.
My entry is Norman Rockwell's "Crackers In Bed" (1920). The boy in the painting looks strikingly like my brother at that age, apart from the reddish hair (his is light ash brown).
I don't think he's ever been a fan of reading in bed, but I always have. The coziness of it all... Getting lost in a book from the comfort of the sheets, best friend curled up at his feet, with a glimpse of the neighbor's house, and the star-filled night sky through the window...are all details that resonate. And I'm not sure what season it is, either. So it could be any time of year.

Albert Pinkham Ryder, just about anything.
|by Anonymous||reply 137||07/03/2021|
R137 I love Albert Pinkham Ryder too, but because he obsessively worked his canvases, sometimes for decades, even going as far to steal them back from people so he could continue perfecting them, many of of canvases are very unstable, darkening, cracking and literally turning to sludge and sliding off the canvas. So go see and enjoy the while you can and hope that the conservators can stabilize and save them.
|by Anonymous||reply 138||07/03/2021|
Very interesting, R138. I wish Ryder had stuck to tried and true conventional painting techniques. From wikipedia:
"Ryder used his materials liberally and with little regard for sound technical procedures. His paintings, which he often worked on for ten years or more, were built up of layers of paint, resin, and varnish applied on top of each other. He would often paint into wet varnish, or apply a layer of fast-drying paint over a layer of slow-drying paint. He incorporated unconventional materials, such as candle wax, bitumen, and non-drying oils, into his paintings. By these means, Ryder achieved a luminosity that his contemporaries admired—his works seemed to "glow with an inner radiance, like some minerals"—but the result was short-lived. Paintings by Ryder remain unstable and become much darker over time; they develop wide fissures, do not fully dry even after decades, and sometimes completely disintegrate. Many of Ryder's paintings deteriorated significantly even during his lifetime, and he tried to restore them in his later years. Because of this, and because some Ryder paintings were completed or reworked by others after his death, many Ryder paintings appear very different today than they did when first created."
The sentence that stuck out for me is that some paintings haven't completely dried even after decades.

The Blue Boy by Gainsborough. This painting has been in California for the last 100 years but is coming to London next January for 3 months. I'm going down there to look at it with some people from my art class. It was painted by Gainsborough in response to his bitter rival Sir Joshua Reynolds who said that light should be painted in warms shades of yellow or red, so Gainsborough used the distinctly cold colour blue to show him he was wrong.

Dr. Pozzi at Home by John Singer Sargent
Pozzi was a famous and groundbreaking Parisian society gynecologist. It has been suggested both that Sargent’s detailed attention to his hands was indicative of Pozzi’s then-radical method of examination of his patients’ anatomy or of Sargent’s homoerotic attraction to the good doctor.
Either way, Julian Barnes’ “The Man in the Red Coat” is a tour of Pozzi’s life against the background of the Belle Époque.

You're too kind, R156. Thanks for introducing me to an artist I didn't know.
