thru Sept 6:

Leighton’s Flaming June
 Frederic Leighton

The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th St., NYC

This nineteenth-century masterpiece embodies the modern philosophy of “art for art’s sake,” the belief that the value of art lies in its aesthetic qualities rather than in its subject matter. The sensuously draped figure — freed from any narrative context — is integrated into a harmonious ensemble of rhythmic lines and radiant color. On loan from the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico, Flaming June makes its first public appearance in New York City in more than thirty-five years, exhibited alongside the Frick’s four full-length portraits by James McNeill Whistler, another major proponent of “art for art’s sake.”

New and older paintings are up at the shop!

Also…who’s ready for some shirts? I’m thinking I will sit down and design some finally this month. I’m thinking about doing pre-orders.
