RIP Eva Zeisel

Eva Zeisel, a ceramic artist whose elegant, eccentric designs for dinnerware in the 1940s and ’50s helped to revolutionize the way Americans set their tables, died on Friday in New City, N.Y. She was 105. An amazing life and career. She was a favorite of mine. Read more of her NYTimes obituary here...

A fashion revolutionary Chanel

A fashion revolutionary of the more distant past was also on the tip of everyone’s tongue this year, thanks to a host of dueling biographies discussing Coco Chanel’s high-profile love affairs and wartime activities. But Jerome Gautier’s Chanel: A Vocabulary of Style (Yale) focuses exclusively on her enduring influence, captured in classic images by Richard Avedon and Patrick Demarchelier, as well as thoughtful juxtapositions of old (Cecil Beaton’s iconic portrait of Chanel) and new (a Karl Lagerfeld–clad Cate Blanchett).

David Foster Wallace

“In dark times, the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements of what's human and magical that still live and glow despite the times' darkness. Really good fiction could have as dark a worldview as it wished, but it'd find a way both to depict this world and to illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it.”

17th century modernism?

"The purer the consciousness, the bluer and clearer the sky." 17th c  Tantric painting
More in the New York Times article... about this book that I want: A collection of rare, abstract Tantric painting originates in French poet Franck André Jamme’s journey to India twenty-five years ago when he first searched in vain for the source of these intensely beautiful and concise works.
