      Peter Acheson: We were in Yellowstone Park a few summers ago with my kids. We get out to Wyoming and my daughter starts getting symptoms of Bell’s palsy. The doctors are like, “We can’t deal with this here, we gotta get her to an ER.” All of a sudden this young RN comes out going, […]

      Having been remiss in the article I promised to send you I thought that I would list all of the very good artists that are not overly known in the U.S. that I came across during my brief sojourn in Europe this summer. I will forward this outline as a beginning to what was promised. […]

      Emily Auchincloss: You started out making large installations. For an installation artist, space is a primary medium, and you have maintained its primacy in your paintings.

      Henri Michaux (1899-1984) enjoys the best kind of posterity. On a small street in Paris – all of one block long – crowded with handsome galleries showing the fearsome, minutely crafted totems of Africa and Oceania, his paintings draw a steady stream of people who look at them not because they want to buy an […]
