Peter Schjeldahl, of The New Yorker fame, has claimed the Norman Rockwell fantasy for America!

In his lastest blog entry, New Yorker critic Peter Schjeldahl, has stolen Norman Rockwell from the masses and told us just how painterly he is. See for one’s self: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/2013/11/a-kind-word-for-norman-rockwell.html?mbid=gnep&google_editors_picks=true

Though it is a tad trifling for him to tell us now. It is due exactly to his painterly abilities and marketability that he was so beloved by Americans. Mr. Schjeldahl, ever the attentive modernistical critic, has allowed us through his blog post from Conde Nast to finally view Norman Rockwell with the attention he deserves. 3 cheers for Norman…er, I mean Peter S.!

In two exhibitions this spring New York City is becoming just a little bit Holier. Two exquisite Books of Hours are being unbound for conservation purposes. One is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the other is at the Morgan Museum and Library. I am highly anticipating going to these shows in the coming months. April looks like a good time to go. Here is the link to the NYTimes article on the Morgan show: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/22/arts/design/22catherine.html?ref=design  I am certain that there will be an even bigger article on the Limbourg Brothers show at the Met.

This looks to be a good museum season, on the East Coast at least.

So a piece of artwork, a sculpture to be precise, was stolen off of Bernie Madoff’s Montauk estate. This might be the work of the Earth Liberation Front. LOL!

Anyways  here is the link to the article on MSN: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32891697/

Lets hope more white-collar criminals get the same treatment 🙂

The first link is to the Times article on the William Blake exhibition at the Morgan, the second is the Morgan’s website which gives an overview of the exhibition. I am excited to see this show. Though it means a trip to New York City and an outlaying of cabbage I know it will be well worth it.
