嶋本 昭三Shozo Shimamoto

What do you see when you look at Shozo Shimamoto's oil painting?
The work is formed by piercing holes in the work's surface. Viewed from a distance, the overall effect is that of a lunar landscape, all craters and bumps.

Le Corbusier 130歲;{漢清講堂}記念 Le Voyage d'Orient 3講

  Le Corbusier 130歲;{漢清講堂}記念 Le Voyage d'Orient 3講.

Corbu 130歲,漢清講堂將作其壯遊記

1966: Le Voyage d'Orient (Journey to the East /The Voyage to the East)---20歲約一年1910-11的遊記筆記,1966年(身後)出版。
Journey to the East by Le Corbusier, Edited by Ivan Zaknic《東方游記》1987

我2016年3月8日在facebook 介紹此書。隔天江先生貼說某著名日本建築師 ,提倡"負建築"就是反  Le Corbusier的。我當然知道21世紀反  Le Corbusier 的人很多,然而,無損於他是"20世紀最知名的建築師"美譽---作品多已成重要的文化資產。他的繪畫在瑞士有專門美術館收藏。


在通俗文化,參考BBC 的 Art Deco Icons - The Orient Express (第2集的約第28分鐘,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkGJsNPyR2o&t=833s) ,拿出約1925年的英國建築雜誌,其中大力評判法國的 Art Deco是"未完成的......",大捧 Le Corbusier 的現代主義。.....

Image result for Alexander Liberman (1912-99);The Artist in His Studio

The Artist in His Studio, foreword by James Thrall Soby, Viking Press (New York), 1960, revised edition, Random House (New York), 1988

Alexander Semeonovitch Liberman (September 4, 1912 – November 19, 1999) was a Russian-American magazine editor, publisher, painter, photographer, and sculptor. He held senior artistic positions during his 32 years at Condé Nast Publications.

Life and career[edit]

When his father took a post advising the Soviet government, the family moved to Moscow. Life there became difficult, and his father secured permission from Lenin and the Politburoto take his son to London in 1921.
Young Liberman was educated in Russia, England, and France, where he took up life as a "White Émigré" in Paris.
He began his publishing career in Paris in 1933–36 with the early pictorial magazine Vu, where he worked under Lucien Vogel as art director, then managing editor, working with photographers such as BrassaïAndré Kertész, and Robert Capa.[6]
After emigrating to New York in 1941, he began working for Condé Nast Publications, rising to the position of editorial director, which he held from 1962-1994.
Only in the 1950s did Liberman take up painting and, later, metal sculpture. His highly recognizable sculptures are assembled from industrial objects (segments of steel I-beams, pipes, drums, and such), often painted in uniform bright colors. In a 1986 interview concerning his formative years as a sculptor and his aesthetic, Liberman said, "I think many works of art are screams, and I identify with screams."[7] Prominent examples of his work are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of ArtStorm King Art CenterHirshhorn Museum and Sculpture GardenPyramid Hill Sculpture ParkTate Gallery, and the Guggenheim Museum. His massive work "The Way", a 65 feet (20 m) x 102 feet (31 m) x 100 feet (30 m) structure,[8] is made of eighteen salvaged steel oil tanks, and became a signature piece of Laumeier Sculpture Park,[9] and a major landmark of St. Louis, Missouri.[10][11]
He was married briefly to Hildegarde Sturm (August 25, 1936), a model and competitive skier. His second wife (since 1942), Tatiana Yacovleff du Plessix Liberman (1906–1991), had been a childhood playmate and baby sitter. In 1941, they escaped together from occupied France, via Lisbon, to New York. She had operated a hat salon in Paris, then designed hats for Henri Bendel in Manhattan. She continued in millinery at Saks Fifth Avenue where she was billed as "Tatania du Plessix" or "Tatania of Saks", until the mid-1950s.[12] In 1992, he married Melinda Pechangco, a nurse who had cared for Tatiana during an early illness. His stepdaughter, Francine du Plessix Gray, is a noted author.

A 1929 Modigliani Catalogue is a Window into Art History

De Hauke and Co—an important dealer of modern art from Europe, selling to American collectors and museums—was run by César Mange de Hauke, and was an offshoot of the renowned Parisian art dealer Jacques Seligmann & Co. Before the Armory show of 1913, Jacques Seligmann had primarily focused on decorative pieces from medieval and Renaissance eras and the 18th century. After the Armory show, Germain Seligman, son of Jacques and by then the head of the company (he dropped the family name’s extra “n”) realized the burgeoning market for contemporary European art and created a separate company for it. César Mange de Hauke was chosen as the head of the New York-based enterprise, De Hauke & Co, and the business prospered, even through the Depression.
Almost every major museum in the United States bought from Seligman and de Hauke during their early years of major acquisitions. American museums formed their collections through an intertwined network of critics, collectors, and dealers, as evidenced by this Modigliani catalogue—which was itself a gift to the Guggenheim from Helen Appleton Read, art critic from 1922 to 1938 for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
There is undeniable emotional power even in the monochromatic reproductions of Modigliani’s paintings. As the unsigned introduction says, “The profound sadness of his destiny permeates all of his works and that gives them their real value. This sadness, infused through the faces of the Modigliani sitters, lends them all an ineffable pathos.”
