Artemis: laughing at something earlier and spilling my tea all over… then laughing at the mishap and realizing it ruined a bunch of important papers. :-/

Das Schiff 

Location: Pier of Blankenberge, Belgium

Stephan Balkenhol  (b. 1957, German)

Description via:  beeldenpark.be  “A vessel appeared to have been washed ashore by the pier of Blankenberge during a tidal wave. The vessel is built of wide, long boards. Two reliefs decorate the sides with an anonymous male and female figure lying down. Schiff (Ship) is a work by sculptor Stephan Balkenhol who is particularly renowned for his wooden sculptures. For Beaufort02 Balkenhol, inspired by the sea and the life of fishermen, was in search for an existing vessel. By adding images of the stern as well as reliefs the artist completes the story of the vessel, hovering between riddle and recognisability.”

The Five Spot Café was a jazz club located at 5 Cooper Square in the Bowery neighbourhood of New York City.

Description via: wikipedia: “In 1937, Salvatore Termini (b. 1884) purchased what was then known as the Bowery Café, a working-class bar located under the Third Avenue El. In 1946, two of Termini’s sons, Joe and Ignatze (Iggy), returned from the war and helped run the bar. In 1951, the sons purchased the business from their father and renamed it the No. 5 Bar.

In late 1955, the Third Avenue El was demolished and the city embarked on a revitalization of the Bowery. During this time, many artists were drawn to the area due to the cheaper rent prices compared to Greenwich Village. Pianist Don Shoemaker was among the influx of artists who moved to the Bowery. Occupying a studio at 1 Cooper Square above the No. 5 Bar, Shoemaker hosted jam sessions during which he would purchase beer from the Terminis. Shoemaker eventually told Joe that if the bar would purchase a piano, he and his band would play. Joe bought a used upright piano, received a cabaret licence on 30 August 1956, and opened a week later under the name the Five Spot Café. Painters such as David Smith, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Joan Mitchell, Alfred Leslie, Larry Rivers, Grace Hartigan, Jack Tworkov, Michael Goldberg, Roy Newell, Howard Kanovitz and writers Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Frank O'Hara, Ted Joans, and Gregory Corso began to frequent the club.

“Looking For My Father” (by Wolf Silveri)

Everywhere the great artist hears spirit answer to his spirit. Where, then, can you find a more religious man?

Does not the sculptor perform his act of adoration when he perceives the majestic character of the forms that he studies? — when, from the midst of fleeting lines, he knows how to extricate the eternal type of each being? — when he seems to discern in the very breast of the divinity the immutable models on which all living creatures are moulded? Study, for example, the masterpieces of the Egyptian sculptors, either human or animal figures, and tell me if the accentuation of the essential lines does not produce the effect of a sacred hymn. Every artist who has the gift of generalizing forms, that is to say, of accenting their logic without depriving them of their living reality, provokes the same religious emotion; for he communicates to us the thrill he himself felt before the immortal verities.

The Abandoned

Artist: Auguste Rodin (French, Paris 1840–1917 Meudon)

Date: 1898–1907

Medium: Graphite

Dimensions: 7 9/16 x 11 7/8 in. (19.4 x 30.4 cm)

Accession Number: 10.45.20 - The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Description and image from The Metropolitan Museum of Art “Rodin began titling his drawings when he exhibited them at the 1900 Exposition Universelle. As with his sculptures, the titles remained flexible. Sometimes he appended more than one title to the same composition, enjoying the possibility of multiple meanings coexisting within a work. Other iterations of this drawing appear with inscriptions such as Psyché and Chanson de geste (epic poem).”
