Labor Day, 2017


Riva Helfond, Curtain Factory, 1937


In the 1930s Riva Helfond had a studio in New York’s Garment District.

From her window she could look across the street and see women working in a sweatshop with lots of billowing white and pastel-colored fabrics. It piqued her curiosity because she couldn’t figure out what they were making. Her first thought was formal wear or wedding and bridesmaids dresses but the material seemed wrong for the styles of the day.

Finally, one day Helfond crossed the street and walked up the stairs to find a curtain factory. In one form or another seamstresses appeared in her work over the next two decades.

LAST TWO DAYS: Making Space

-->
Works by DOROTHY DEHNER and ANNE RYAN are in Making Space: Women Artists and Post-War Abstraction at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. The exhibition ends tomorrow, Sunday, August 13, 2017. The paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, and drawings, date from the end of the Second World War, 1945, to the beginning of the Feminist Movement, 1968.
 
A work at the Gallery: Anne Ryan, Collage, 1951
A label for the show notes “Abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years, as many artists working in the aftermath of World War II sought an international language that might transcend national and regional narratives – and for women artists, additionally, those relating to gender.” One might add that the figure had become too banal to paint.

The nearly 100 works in many mediums by more than 50 artists (including women from Europe, the Americas, and Japan), form an ethereal and mesmerizing exhibition. Of course we were especially pleased to see both Dorothy Dehner and Anne Ryan included and then so intrigued to find them nearly side-by-side. Dehner is represented by a single piece of six bronze parts, Enounter, 1969; Ryan by four collages.

National Dance Day

National Dance Day


Hugh Mesibov, Dancers, 1938

Hugh Mesibov’s lithograph Dancers, 1938, was made at the WPA Printmaking Shop in Philadelphia. It was agreed that he could make a print using several colors, but had to let a colleague make a black and white lithograph in between. Consequently it took several months to complete the image and when it was done ‘they’ (Michael J. Gallagher?) decided against publishing it.

Peggy Bacon, Promenade, 1935

Peggy Bacon would certainly been among the first to celebrate National Dance Day (established in 2010). This Woodstock, square dancing scene from about 1935 is a drawing destined for the Art About the Arts page but a quirk kept it from showing up. I’m not giving up, but today is a perfect chance to show it off.

ANNE RYAN'S SPIDER


Right now The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a fascinating group of arachnidan images up in their Drawings and Prints Gallery, just to the left of the top of the Grand Staircase. We are suggesting yet another on this rarified theme: The Spider, Anne Ryan, 1944, intaglio, 9 x 7 inches.
