Remarkable living monuments from around the world

JANUARY

merican scientist Edmund Schulman’s groundbreaking tree-ring research in the 1950s led to his discovery of a bristlecone pine more than 4,800 years old, proving that the gnarled, diminutive pines are the oldest non-clonal trees on Earth—not the giant sequoias, as previously thought. Native to the American West, these tenacious trees thrive at a high elevation in extremely poor soil and with limited rainfall. Their growing season can be a mere forty-five days each year, yet they persist for millennia. By studying the planet’s oldest trees, Schulman hoped to capture a precise record of Earth’s climatic shifts. The bristlecone pines are ideal for this research because of their longevity and sensitivity to environmental changes. The bristlecone’s wood decomposes extremely slowly, which has allowed dendrochronologists (scientists who study tree rings) to cross-date cores extracted from both living and fallen specimens. The result is a chronology extending back 11,500 years—nearly to the last ice age—the longest continual climatic tree-ring record on the planet.

May Mexico—Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club Course opened 2007 | Designers: Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman Part of a two-thousand-acre planned community ten minutes from downtown San Jose del Cabo, the Puerto Los Cabos Golf Club is a twenty-seven-hole resort with eighteen holes by Nicklaus Design, and nine by Greg Norman Golf Course Design. The courses are set into the rolling desert foothills, and they offer views of the Sea of Cortez and the mountains of Sierra de la Laguna. The combination of lush green fairways with rich desert valley and sparkling ocean views makes a round of golf on any of the nines at Puerto Los Cabos unforgettable. ABOVE: Stunning ocean views from the 6th hole on the Nicklaus course. RIGHT: The 6th hole on the Norman nine is a long par three with panoramic sea views.

WH I LE R EN OI R WAS once a porcelain painter, Woodside started out as a sign painter. In America at that time, still life was disdained as a genre appropriate only for women and amateurs, but a few artists, including Woodside, defied that attitude. The angled knife is a convention in still-life painting to lead the viewer in and to create a sense of depth, but here it is also functional: to slice into the juicy peaches.

everything piled on her kitchen table, but her carefully composed still life is a vehicle for depictions of light—the way it filters through the translucent curtain, or catches the tip of a flower petal, or bounces off the bowl with the raspberries. The many types and layers of glass, too, reflect or absorb the sunlight, creating visual complexities: Is the butterfly real or is it a decoration on the fishbowl?

Though his flowers can be identified, they take on an otherworldly aura.

to New York from her second stay in New Mexico, O’Keeffe wrote, “The bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive on the desert.” That fall, she painted the present work, partly in response to the artists of the time who sought to identify a quintessential American style. To O’Keeffe, the beauty of the sun-bleached animal skulls captured the true enduring spirit of the nation.

I N 1 87 7, EDGAR D EGAS (week of December 6) invited Cassatt to join the independent artists later known as the Impressionists. The only American officially associated with the group, Cassatt exhibited in four of their eight exhibitions. In the 1890s, she began to focus her work on children and the women who cared for them. Here, she used two of her frequent, but unrelated, models to enact the roles of mother and child.

LO N G BEFO R E TH E digital age, photographers were manipulating their images. In 1932, Wulz submitted five experimental photographs, including this one, to the National Futurist Photography Exhibition in Trieste. To create this mesmerizing image, the artist printed two negatives—one of herself and the other of the family cat—on a single sheet of photographic paper, turning herself into a virtual “cat woman.”

TH E “ ROYAL G EORG E” Cello is fit for a king— appropriately so, as it was made for the Prince Regent, an avid cellist, who was crowned George IV in 1820. The most celebrated member of a family dynasty of violin and cello makers, Forster is often referred to as “Royal Forster” because of his clientele. A work of visual art as well as a superlative instrument, this magnificent cello is emblazoned with Great Britain’s royal coat of arms and the Prince of Wales’s feathers.

masses yearning to breathe free . . . Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” read the last lines of a sonnet by Emma Lazarus. Donated to an auction held to raise money to complete the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty, the poem was largely forgotten until 1903, when it was engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted on a wall inside the pedestal.

To its right is 40 Wall Street, home of the Bank of Manhattan Trust. When completed in 1930, the building was the tallest in the world; two months later, it was topped by the Chrysler Building. In 1995, Donald Trump took over the lease to 40 Wall Street and rechristened it the Trump Building.

LO N G BEFO R E TH E age of digital photographs, artists like Steichen manipulated their images to get the effects they wanted and assert photography’s ability to rival painting in scale, color, and expressiveness. By brushing slightly different pigments over each of three prints of the same negative, Steichen created a chromatic study of twilight—and a haunting evocation of the then recently completed Flatiron Building (week of May 31).

Déboucher (Uncorking) from Monseigneur le Vin by Louis Forest CHARLES MARTIN (French, 1884/88– 1932/34) • Published by Etablissements Nicolas, Paris Chromolithograph print, 8 1/4 � 6 in., 1927

IT GOES WITHOUT saying that before drinking, there must be uncorking. As the French wine writer Alexis Lichine said, “There is no substitute for pulling corks.” The removal of the cork augurs an ambrosial aroma, a sip to savor, a festive feast, or perhaps a bibulous banquet.

“DRINK WINE. THIS is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you. It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” —Omar Khayyám, The Rubáiyát

WHILE YOSHITOSHI MADE many tranquil or haunting ukiyo-e prints, he also made some that are frightening or violent. This one lands somewhere in between—a rowdy party hosted by the police superintendent. This guzzling fellow in his fern-patterned suit should perhaps have remembered the Japanese proverb, “Wine begins with formalities and ends in a riot.”

THE 19TH CENTURY saw an explosion of new printing techniques that led to mass production of images. Some artists, like Whistler, rejected the new methods and participated in a revival of etching, creating prints of breathtaking subtlety. With fine variations in the density and proximity of the hatchmarks, he describes the clarity and limpidity of a wineglass.
