Inside the Magical and Relentlessly Creative World of Beloved Artist Kiki Smith – Artsy

Inside the Magical and Relentlessly Creative World of Beloved Artist Kiki Smith – Artsy:

Over her four-decade-long career, artist Kiki Smith has made sculptures of body parts, tapestries depicting animals and the cosmos, and drawings of wolves and women—a strange confluence of the corporeal and the fantastic, with distinct feminist undertones. Smith is known as a leader of the downtown art scene that emerged in Manhattan throughout the 1980s, and many of her pieces have a dark fairy-tale quality—as if they could illustrate pages from the Brothers Grimm. I expected for the artist herself to have a bit of magic about her.

Beguiling images from a little-known French painter – The Boston Globe:

“FORT WORTH, Texas — When, in 2011, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston decided to sell one of its paintings by Claude Monet, two by Alfred Sisley, one by Paul Gauguin, one by Camille Pissarro, and one by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, all to buy a single painting, ‘Man at His Bath,’ by Gustave Caillebotte, many people asked a forgivable question: Who is Gustave Caillebotte?”
