Take a look at Marsden Hartley's "Maine Woods." We see a dense forest interior that emphasizes the verticality of the white birch trees. The trees are completely pressed up against the picture plane. A snow-covered mountain is barely distinguishable at the upper right. For this picture, Hartley adopted the Italian divisionist artist Giovanni Segantini's "stitch" brushstroke. He built the image out of short, interlocking lines of pure color. The artist applied the pigment thickly and spontaneously, giving "Maine Woods" an expressive character.

Scythians: Warriors of Ancient Siberia review – magical riches

‘Siberia comes to life in dramatic, sometimes breathtaking ways: in fabulous gold and soft fur, in the insistent humanity of sticks of crafted furniture and clothes and food. That this life – leathery and intimate and horse-obsessed – is preserved from two and a half thousand years ago makes it all the more magical.’ ★★★★★ – The Observer Discover the story of the fearsome #Scythians in our major new exhibition:

GUN OF THE DAY - Franz Sodia Shotgun The manufacturer of this elegantly engraved over-under shotgun started their business in 1871, the same year the National Rifle Association was incorporated. Originally in Ferlach, the Franz Sodia company is now located in Salzburg, Austria, and produces the finet in custom shoulder arms - from carbines to drillings. Our GOTD bears the endearing brand marking "Forever Yours," which was used by the importer, Flaigs Lodge of Millvale, PA.

Statement on the video work “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other”

Museum Statement—the video work “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other” is included in "Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World"—an upcoming exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum of more than 150 works of conceptual and experimental art that explores the end of the Cold War, the spread of globalization, and the rise of China. The work is a seven-minute video of a performance that was staged at a museum in Beijing in 2003, during which dogs were placed on non-motorized treadmills facing one another and prevented from making contact. Contrary to some reports, no fighting occurred in the original performance and the presentation at the Guggenheim is in video format only; it is not a live event. Reflecting the artistic and political context of its time and place, “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other” is an intentionally challenging and provocative artwork that seeks to examine and critique systems of power and control. We recognize that the work may be upsetting. The curators of the exhibition hope that viewers will consider why the artists produced it and what they may be saying about the social conditions of globalization and the complex nature of the world we share.
