Description

Richard Smith (1931-2016) was one of the most original painters of his generation, and one of the most underrated. It is impossible, looking at this picture, to confidently place where everything in the image is in relationship to each other. If These Apples Should Fall: Cezanne and the Present looks back on Cezanne from a moment – our own – when such judgments may seem to need justifying.

Since the 1940s a steady stream of Cuban musicians has also made the migration to the US, sparking changes in North American musical forms: bandleader Machito set New York’s jazz and Latin scene on fire, and master drummer Chano Pozo’s entry into Dizzy Gillespie’s group led to the birth of Latin jazz, to name just two. A bit later, Campany continues, “For Gruyaert, making threshold images means bringing together different light levels and different color temperatures. Although Cyprus is a relatively small island, its position in the East Mediterranean has always given it strategic importance beyond its size. Another image from is from Madrid in 1993 and appears to be taken outside a subway car, through a sheet of glass to a man and a woman sitting inside the car.If we lost touch with his sense of life, they thought, we lost an essential element in our self-understanding. With a historical gazetteer, chronology of major events, index, bibliography and historical and contemporary maps, this book is an invaluable companion to students or visitors to the island. His powers of persuasion clearly exceeded those of Colonel Baker, who seemed the personification of Victorian solidity until that embarrassing incident in the sealed railway compartment, where he failed to entice Miss Dickinson to join in his bit of fun, and afterwards had to try and explain his conduct to the High Court, with the whole nation hanging on his every word. Over the past century, Cuban music has produced a seemingly endless variety of styles―rumba, mambo, son, salsa―at a dizzyingly fast rate. A Magnum photographer and renowned colorist, Harry Gruyaert has been traveling the world for over forty years.

Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert’s work has always been thrilling in the way it articulates a particular way of seeing. He photographs things we’ve all seen – think about TV Shots, his documentary/commentary on British society made of photographs of television screens – but never seen quite the way he does. At the heart of Cezanne lies a sense of disquiet: a homelessness haunting the vividness, an anxiety underlying the appeal of colour.The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside. A penetrating analysis of the work of one of the most influential painters in the history of modern art by one of the world’s most respected art historians.
