DESIGNING DIGITAL COLOR at the Cooper Hewitt

The Cooper Hewitt Museum on Fifth Avenue…..part of the Smithsonian………is in the Andrew Carnegie Mansion…….

The Museum itself is as unique as the exhibitions.

Gallery Goer……..and the map of the state of Michigan………

Me…….in the wallpaper room……….in front of a wallpaper that I designed.

Art before digital………and the creation of art today created digitally.

Renate………a fashion designer………is visiting from Paris……..so we toured the exhibit together.

The museum has a garden…..perfect for a lunch break………

 

My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.

ACADEMY of FINE ART…… in Munich Germany

This is the AKADEMIE der BILDENDEN KUNSTE in Munich where I went to school…………..way back when!  Then I moved to Bremen……….and years later…….back to Munich………….where  I sold my painting in the Frau Schwartz Gallery.

The academy was founded in 1808…….and before that in 1770 by Maximillian 111 Joseph………..he decided to support a drawing school.

Max on his horse…………….

The rooms off this corridor offered classes in …..painting…….engraving and sculpture [which is what I studied].

TIFFANY LAMPS at the NY Historical Society Museum

LOUIS C. TIFFANY was the genius behind Tiffany Studios……but he was not the exclusive designer of these lamps.

CLARA DRISCOLL was the head of the Women’s Glass Cutting Department and she has recently been revealed as the designer of many of these lamps.

The men in the Tiffany Studios designed most of the geometric patterns while the women designed the florals.
