Treasured Tuesday’s – Last week I attempted to straighten up some of the messy piles around the studio. One major issue, the many books and vintage “Art News” magazines retrieved from my dad’s work space last summer. Finally, the many volumes spanning from 1952 – 1962, are unpacked, organized and safely stored in my large, school salvaged, book case.
Cover – Donna Canonici da Ferrara, 1477 of the portrait-pair by Frcesco Cossa. The inscriptions read: UT SIT NOSTRA FORMA SUPERSTSES (In order that our image may survive.)
These issues are most likely rich in art history and imagery, however, I’m not sure whats to be done with them. For now, they will remain a part of my studio stuff as they were in my dad’s.
These look fasinating. Could be a good monthly read!
Hi – That’s a good idea!
What a nice rememberance of your dad and possibly a little inspiration when you may come up to a bit of artist block (but I am quite sure that can’t happen to you!)
You’re right, I rarely have a true “artist block.” Quite the contrary. I’m sure I will not live or be ably to see and draw long enough, to illustrate all of the many visions that are continually coming to mind. I should have started sooner I suppose.
