About Chagall

Posted: March 29, 2017 19:06 Last Updated: | Regina Khidekel, PhD

Thirty two years since Marc Chagall's passing… I observed denigration and belittlement of this artist by Soviet officials, which continued even in early post-Soviet times. Based on two prejudices – against his Modernism (meaning non-Socialist-Realism) and Jewishness – this behavior toward him was more apparent in Vitebsk, Belarus, his birthplace, than Moscow, Russia. Some changes have been allowed by the Belarusian government – there is a Chagall Museum in Vitebsk today – but until that government becomes representative, democratic and the country it governs – free, the artist will not be ...

Anne Ryan, The Argument, 1946

New York Times review of Anne Ryan: The Black-Line Woodcuts

Posted: November 16, 2011 08:17 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

In her New York Times review of November 4, 2011, Roberta Smith wrote: (Ryan’s) subjects include bathers, reclining nudes, still lifes and juggling clowns. Most are implicitly nocturnal, which is especially effective in stark images of apartment buildings and in two examples of “The Argument.” Here two scrawled figures confront each other against a cragged, gray background that, suggesting an urban wall, recasts them as giant graffiti. These are physically obstreperous works, shot through with unsettling emotions.   Link to entire article: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/04/art...
