What will be the zine “Dirty Pictures” about?

It’s my erotic drawings. They’re simple, so the plan was to lipstick kiss and color each zine with red pencil. I printed two hundreds and the first ones I did were nice, proper even, like a school girl coloring in something naughty. Now I’ve started scribbling and they look like the work of a psychopath. It’s good for the soul to see eroticism outside the mainstream.

Due to their height the #FAA tried to block the development of these 2 buildings. Good thing they didn’t. Once home to #Gannett these towers contain a number of tenants that span across public and private sectors. Purchased as a part of a huge fund level purchase of the #Beacon_Capital portfolio in #2007 by a #Lehman - #Monday_Properties #joint_venture these 2 buildings became the spat of a fight between the #lehman_bankruptcy_estate in early #October after #Goldman_Sachs backed out of a deal to #buyout Lehman’s majority interest.

Wonderful art from  Herakut

Herakut is the name of a two-person team of German street artists specializing in murals. Jasmin Siddiqui, or “Hera,” and Falk Lehman, “Akut,” call themselves graffiti artists, most of their work is commissioned; smaller Herakut works have also been exhibited more formally in galleries. They have also released two books: The Perfect Merge and After the Laughter, which are retrospectives covering 2004-2009 and 2009-2011, respectively.

By Anne Leader

Art collector and banker Philip Lehman died on 21 March 1947. While director of Lehman Brothers (closed 2008), Philip Lehman began collecting Italian Renaissance art. He was particularly active in his acquisitions between 1914 and 1920. Esteemed connoisseur and advisor to numerous collectors Bernard Berenson was one of his good friends. Philip’s son Robert published a catalog of his father’s collection in 1928. In that year he succeeded his father as head of the family investment firm and moved its offices to a neo-Renaissance building on William Street in Manhattan. Robert continued to collect art like his father and donated their combined collection of over 1,000 artworks to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is housed in a specially built wing of the museum.

Up To You, Down To Me
 David Rathman
Morgan Lehman Gallery, 535 W22nd St., NYC

presents Rathman’s latest series of paintings and works on paper, which continue his exploration of everyday objects and experiences, and the stories they tell. Rathman makes paintings that impart subjective, personal scenarios. They depict brief, fleeting narratives extracted from larger stories. Despite largely monochromatic palettes and modestly scaled works, his skill with watercolor results in dramatic atmospheric landscapes that create vivid and poignant vignettes. - thru Dec 23
