Roy Lichtenstein: Early Beginnings Before finishing his undergraduate education at Ohio State University, Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) was drafted for Army service. Through a series of reassignments, Lichtenstein trained as a draftsman stateside and by the end of 1944 his unit was shipped to Europe. There, Lichtenstein took every spare moment, in between performing combat operations, to study the works of artists such as Paul Cézanne, Georges Rouault, and Francisco Goya at the Louvre and other French, British, and German institutions. Upon his discharge in 1946, the young artist returned to OSU to complete his B.F.A. and continued on to pursue a graduate degree in Fine and Applied Arts. Along with his extensive coursework in history, criticism, and multi-media execution, Lichtenstein composed a thesis on various modern artists including Henri Matisse, Paul Klee, and Pablo Picasso. It was during this period that Lichtenstein began working in series and exploring “sustained themes.” Though Lichtenstein wouldn’t develop his signature iconography for another decade, his interest in “paraphrasing” common images began to flourish. The academically dominant Abstract Expressionists despised objective representation, labelling the grand figurative styles of the nineteenth century cheap and hackneyed. Lichtenstein, however, recognized that despite their lack of individuality, these art forms remained particularly abundant in the ‘lowbrow’ visuality of the everyday. He then sought to tease out the intersections of representation and abstraction that could imbue images with cultural salience. In 1950, a friend provided Lichtenstein with a book on the Bayeux Tapestry. A landmark work in the development of sequential narrative art, the tapestry demonstrates a grandiose rhetorical dramatization, designed for an illiterate mass audience. As one of the earliest examples of popular media accommodating viewers of the lowest common denominator, the tapestry provided an ideal test subject for the artist’s burgeoning inclinations. Over the next few years, Lichtenstein fabricated a series of “humorous variations” on the historical painting

genre. As illustrated by St. Macarius Before His Monastery (1951), Lichtenstein began depicting medieval narrative icons, such as knights and saints, in a simplistic, Cubist style, quietly alluding to traditions of lore and mythology. The subject matter proved fruitful for the artist as Knight on Horseback (1951) was awarded first prize in sculpture at the Ohio State Fair and his woodcut, To Battle (1950), both took first prize in the fair’s graphics category and won the Brooklyn Museum’s museum purchase award upon its showing at the "Fifth National Print Annual Exhibition" in 1951. Lichtenstein’s interest in the subject of folklore eventually led to his study of the “American knight,” materializing in his naïve renderings of cowboys on the western frontier, and revolutionary war heros, as seen in Washington Crossing the Delaware (1951). These themes were particularly instructive for Lichtenstein as they offered a roadmap for a rigorous conceptual treatment of popular culture. In defiance of his predecessors’ insistence on originality, he found that replicating familiar identities and images allowed for his “detachment” from the formal restraints of “serious subject matter.” This made way for his critical consideration of the types of simplified representations exemplified by comic books, that were themselves unintentional derivations of ‘high art’ forms. Having identified through his ‘historical’ painting exercise the process by which “overuse” renders a reference iconic, Lichtenstein discovered that he could mobilize the aesthetically corrosive effects of popular media by supercharging its content with irony and self-awareness.

John Levee Born in California, John Levee (1924-2017) would become one of the most important Abstract Expressionists of the mid-century Parisian expatriate art scene. After serving as an aviator in the French liberation effort during World War II, Levee returned to the U.S. before securing a grant through the G.I. Bill, which allowed him to return to France in 1949. Through his enrollment at the Académie Julian, Levee crossed paths with American painter Sam Francis, who would become Levee’s close friend. Like Francis, Levee pursued a form of lyrical abstraction. Even his most rhythmic forms however, maintained a geometric, near architectural, framework that prefigured his later transition to hard-edge painting. Levee’s thick application of his paints emphasized the physicality of his materials and the complete absence of representation within his compositions.

forms to produce complex pictorial relationships. As the artist entered the 1950s, he received significant critical reception, holding his first solo exhibition at Galerie 8 and participating in a number of significant Parisian shows, including Galerie Craven’s “Peintres les Américains en France” in 1953 and Galerie de France’s “Dix Jeunes Peintres de l’Ecole de Paris” in 1956. Levee also garnered attention stateside, exhibiting at both the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Whitney Museum repeatedly between 1957 and 1965. Today, the artist’s work is prominently represented around the globe in both private and public collections, including the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. “John Levee.” Hanina Fine Arts, 2017, www.haninafinearts.com/artists/john_levee/ biography.

Like many of his European contemporaries, Levee favored muted tones that hinted at the somber mood of the postwar atmosphere. The austerity of his palette united with his explosive

Through his training in Budapest, Madrid, and Paris, the Hungarian-born painter, Francis de Erdely (1904–1959), developed a modern style with a deep respect for the traditions of Classicism. Following the completion of his formal education, de Erdely travelled throughout Europe teaching and studying the technical methods of the Old Masters. As World War II began to ravage the continent, de Erdely immigrated to the United States. He first settled in New York and began successfully exhibiting at respected institutions on the East Coast. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1940s, however, that de Erdely established his mature artistic identity. When the painter held his solo exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1944, he was immediately showered with critical praise. Los Angeles Times arts editor, Arthur Millier, compared the emotional intensity and dignity of de Erdely’s somber images of European devastation to that of Francisco Goya’s haunting nineteenth century etchings. The artist “[illuminated]” faces and figures that would otherwise go unnoticed and sensitively paired the frailty of his subjects with “tender coloring.” Millier asserted that de Erdely’s works “[burned] with sincerity” and that their humanitarian pleas were rendered all the more urgent by the care and compassion that the painter showed, not only to his subjects, but to his viewers alike. While producing these compelling works, de Erdely undertook a prolific teaching career. Credited with having incomparably shaped a generation of California painters, de Erdely taught at the University of Southern California from 1945 until his death in 1959, as well as at other schools in the Los Angeles area. In addition to residing in the permanent collections of nearly every major art museum in California, de Erdely’s paintings are in the collections of some of the world’s most prominent institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, and the Bussels Moderne, Brussels.

Indoor/Outdoor Designs for Living Finding that the dominant furniture styles of the 1930s were wholly inappropriate for California’s growing architectural interest in unifying indoor and outdoor spaces, the design partnership Van Keppel-Green (VKG) set to crafting simple, multiuse, all-weather pieces that could be easily moved from place to place throughout the home. VKG has been credited with the invention of the term indoor/outdoor living, which was used early on in their marketing materials. Their products became uniquely embedded in the iconography of mid-century modernism and was a leading influence on some of the period’s most prominent furniture designers. Both California natives, Hendrik Van Keppel (1914–1988) and Taylor Green (1914–1991) met in Los Angeles in 1937. Finding that they shared an enthusiasm for simple, essentialized form, they soon joined forces to establish their design and manufacturing practice in downtown Los Angeles, which would later become a series of shops in Beverly Hills, and finally their Santa Monica ‘Country Store’ in the late 1960s. While the general public tended to automatically classify VKG’s pieces as outdoor furniture, the design duo only crafted a handful of works exclusively intended for outdoor use. Offering custom fabrication, VKG catered to art world masters and Hollywood royalty alike. Due to their works’ singular compatibility with the philosophy of the Arts and Architecture Case Study House program, VKG began attracting the program’s architects, designers, and en-

thusiasts in 1945. In 1960, when Julius Shulman famously photographed Pierre Koenig’s Case Study House #22 (the Stahl House), Koenig enlisted VKG’s expertise to furnish the entirety of the home’s interior and exterior. Similarly, Shulman’s iconic poolside images of Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House showcase a VKG table and lounge chairs. VKG’s catalogue also routinely graced the silver screen, as both Van Keppel and Green maintained good relationships with the era’s film studios, and often rented out their designs for set dressing. VKG’s repertoire achieved near ubiquity in the period as it radiated the “attractive informality” that animated popular notions of modern “California living.” Many of the pieces that are now being sold by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art hail from Van Keppel’s personal collection, and offer an intimate portrait of the designer’s curation of his own home. The private nature of these works stands as a testament to Van Keppel’s resolute confidence in the elegant functionality of his creations.

Glen Lukens Missouri-born ceramic and glass artist, Glen Lukens (1887–1967), is celebrated as one of “the great artist-teachers” of the twentieth century. Through his workshops, writing, and experiments, he sparked a sweeping interest in traditional pottery methods that had been discounted with the advent of new technologies and trends. “Self-educated” in geology and ceramic engineering, Lukens attended Maryville State Teachers College and taught elementary and high school in his home state before relocating to California. At the time, America’s formal ceramic tradition was rooted on the East Coast where many of European artisans had settled. As a result, Lukens’ independent approach to the discipline emerged liberally and untethered. The artist developed a practice characterized by a rough, organic aesthetic that proposed a visual counter-argument to the precise and decorative styles of his predecessors. Inspired by his frequent trips to Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the artist moved west in the 1920s to search for desert materials akin to those used by the ancient Egyptians to create the iconic blue glazes known as Egyptian faience. Lukens’ career-long quest to replicate ancient pastes motivated his investigation of natural mineral deposits and alkaline compositions. Using selenium, uranium, and other rare minerals, he harnessed distinctive pigments, such as his signature “ocean-like” blue glaze, which took nearly ten years to develop. Amidst simple shapes and forms, Lukens often paired rich, silky colors with coarse, unglazed clay, illustrating “a contrast between arid and lush,” reminiscent of the environmental diversity of his adopted California home. Throughout his career Lukens perfected his crackle glazes, which when pooled and dripped, as seen in Shallow Bowl (c. 1939), Bowl (c. 1945), and Vase (c. 1940), produced a sense of drama. These glazes also ensured that each execution was entirely unique, an idea central to the studio pottery movement of which Lukens was a pioneer. While teaching at Fullerton High School, Fullerton College, and later the University of Southern California, Lukens made important technical contributions to the ceramic arts. In addition to displacing the dominant slip-cast method by being “possibly the first ceramist in California to use the potter’s wheel,” Lukens developed one of the earliest electric kilns, in collaboration with his students. Prior to Lukens’

engineering, schools and studios were unable to maintain in-house pottery kilns due to their size and emissions. The artist debuted his design at the San Francisco World’s Fair of 1939-40, where it was used for demonstration firings by Gertrud and Otto Natzler. Lukens attracted a large number of disciples, not only through his ceramic work, but through his robust offering of glass, metalworking, and jewelry courses as well. After just one year teaching at USC, Lukens was appointed chair of the university’s nascent ceramics program in 1933. One of the first of its kind, the program drew students and teachers from across disciplines, eager to train under Lukens’ guidance. Lukens’ impressive roster of students included F. Carlton Ball, Roy Walker, and Frank Gehry. An advocate for utilitarian art, Lukens retired from USC in the mid-1940s to travel to Haiti, upon invitation from the United States Aid Program. Throughout the following decade the artist worked with the island’s communities to establish pottery craft as a profitable home industry. In light of many failed attempts to secure continued financial support from Washington, Lukens tirelessly petitioned his personal and professional circles stateside for funding and supplies. In 1951, Lukens was presented with a commendation by the Haitian government, in part for his role in stemming the island’s dysentery epidemic. By replicating traditional gourd drinking vessels with glazed ceramic, Lukens offered the Haitian people a more sanitary, yet culturally salient, alternative for water storage and consumption. By the time Lukens returned home to California in the late 1950s, a new wave of ceramic art had taken hold. Due to the artist’s worsening arthritis and the realization that his form of low-fire earthenware had fallen out of fashion, Lukens began focusing on glassware. Until his death in 1967, Lukens continued to offer a variety workshops and avidly produced literature on ceramic art. Lukens’ formidable influence on California’s ceramic heritage is undisputed and his work still exhibits actively.

Looking Through the Natural World Over the course of his career, Joe Goode (b. 1937) has explored the nature of perception and the fluid relationship between representation and abstraction. Featured in the Pasadena Art Museum’s 1962 exhibition, “New Painting of Common Objects,” Joe Goode’s breakout Milk Bottle series earned him national recognition and a prominent place within the Pop Art canon. Goode characterized his subject matter as “the stuff that [he was] confronted with everyday.” Despite similar historical context, Goode’s commentary diverged from that of contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha, observed one critic, in that he refused to address any particular argument or audience. Goode’s independent conceptual rhetoric was reiterated in the series of works that he began producing in the 1970s, which highlighted natural forces. While some have attached metaphysical meaning to the apparent shift in Goode’s subject matter, the artist pointed out that his portrayal of “the elements” was truly a perpetuation of his core framework of encounters with the everyday. When Goode moved to Springville, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, he began painting his Torn Sky series. In the series’ works, clear blue skies, imitating the mountain air surrounding his new home, are interrupted by patches of hazy, Los Angeles atmosphere, rendered in tan and pea green, that peek out from behind the top layer of canvas. According to Goode, the Torn Sky paintings were pure observations of texture, and didn’t initially contain any criticism. However, upon exhibiting the works in London, he was startled by the revelation that his European audience struggled to identify the murky colors of the secondary canvas layer as sky variants. It was this encounter that “made [him] really conscious of what kind of sky we had” and the compelling exchanges between people and their natural environments. Despite its clarity, the Springville sky lacked the complexity afforded to Los Angeles sunsets by the city’s smog gradient. Goode instead undertook identifying the dynamic color qualities of the pastoral scenes that surrounded him.

Just as the icon of the milk bottle had presented itself to Goode on his doorstep, one early morning as he returned from working a night shift, so did the initial inspiration for Untitled (Forest Fire) (1982). As reported by the artist, one evening in the late 1970s, Goode was sitting on his porch and noticed a bright light coming up from behind a mountain. He recalled thinking to himself that it was “going to be the damnedest moon [he’d] ever seen in his life.” After waiting until nearly four o’clock in the morning for the supposed moon to emerge, Goode suddenly noticed the defined edges of flames stretching upwards. The next day he asked a friend of his, who worked for the Forest Service, to bring him out to the site of the fire. Upon gazing at the scene, Goode was awestruck by the magnitude of the destruction and the dissolution of the visual character that he had previously sought to capture. Following his Forest Fire works, Goode was inspired by the “rebirth of the forest” and created the Tree series (to which Tree #26 (1986) and Tree #16 (1987) belong). The artist described the difficulty of documenting this healing process, citing the challenge of capturing his desired “sense of looking in and out, above and below” the mammoth foliage. Goode’s 1992 Tornado series revisited the terrain of his Oklahoma upbringing. The painter demystified the “sublime” by pausing an unrelenting force, allowing the viewer to peer into a fury that would otherwise inspire a retreat. While Goode’s “pictorial image” constantly changes, he says that “what [he is] trying to do” remains resolute. From milk bottles to tornados, his “idea of looking through something doesn’t change.” Coyne, Mary. “Joe Goode at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.” Droste Effect Mag, 13 Oct. 2015, www.drosteeffectmag.com/joe-goode-contemporary-art-museum-st-louis/.

Keith Haring Keith Haring’s (1958–1990) hieroglyphic expressions have become synonymous with the social electricity of New York City in the 1980s. Unlike the Pop artists who preceded him, Haring’s employment of the simplest symbolic relationships elevated everyday meaning-making and celebrated the universality of visual culture in its most reduced form. As one of the few artists of his generation to successfully cross-pollinate public and institutional art, Haring radically redefined practices of art consumption. Haring’s urban interventions are perhaps the most emblematic of this framework, negotiating unpredictable time, space, and materials. While Haring famously resisted discussing his political inclinations, his public works more than compensated for his coyness. In addition to scrutinizing love, greed, power, racism and homophobia, Haring became a prominent figure in the AIDS activism movement. Following his own diagnosis in 1988, Haring formed the Keith Haring Foundation with the mission of supplying financial support and artistic contributions to AIDS organizations, and generating public awareness through the formal dissemination of his work. Haring helped create the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power's (ACT UP) most iconic visual by co-opting the pink triangle that had been used by the Nazis to identify someone as gay, and contributed to the graphic campaign to spur governmental action in combating the AIDS crisis. Untitled (1984) features Haring’s ‘monkey men,’ who are a recurring motif in a handful of his works. Compared with other examples of Haring’s hybrid animal-human characters, the monkey man is imbued with a sense of innocence and harmlessness. Here, the two men are torn apart by a large disembodied hand, and the traumatic desperation of the moment is documented by Haring’s canny motion lines. This narrative

seems to lament the societal prejudices that prevented gay men from openly expressing their love. One 1983 painting bears a similar iconography, with a miniature depiction of the monkey man caught by his tail. The tableau is embedded in a computer monitor which sits a top a rampaging caterpillar. This work is said to communicate apprehension toward the proliferation of technological media and warns of the commercialization of abuse and injustice. Seeing as such, Haring commonly portrays the monkey man as unwittingly vulnerable. While it is tempting to assign an irrepressible or even divine identity to the faceless power that inflicts the scene’s pain, a more compelling reading may be that the hand represents any faceless power who manipulates individuals to an outsized degree, be that corporate, political, or religious groups. Untitled (1984) evokes the notion that this type of institutional power is only legitimized by the complacency that the work projects onto its viewer. In contrast to Haring’s subway art, most often rendered on the black paper of unoccupied advertising space, Untitled (1984) was executed on plywood. Less ephemeral than paper, the nature of the work’s material demands more from the viewer than the momentary glance that they would be willing to lend on a crowded subway platform, while maintaining the simple spontaneity and sense of connection that his subway pieces meant to elicit.

For Documenta 6, the contemporary art exhibition that occurs every 5 years in Kassel, Germany, Burden exhibited C.B.T.V. (Chris Burden Television). For the piece, Burden created a working replica of an early mechanical television invented by John Logie Baird in 1924. The viewer could choose to stand in front of the machine or place an object in front of the machine, and the image would be transmitted to another room. The piece was intended to give insight into how increasingly complex devices functioned, by presenting an early simplified version.

David Shrigley UK-based multimedia artist David Shrigley (b. 1968) is internationally recognized for his deadpan depictions of the micro-dilemmas inherent to twenty-first century life. With an oeuvre of over 7,000 works, including drawings, sculpture, films, and spoken-word poetry, Shrigley has become one of the most successful artists of his generation. In 2018 alone he was the subject of major solo exhibitions in Shanghai, Brighton, Stockholm, and Athens. The artist earned a B.F.A. in environmental art from the Glasgow School of Art, but says that he harvests his works “without any consideration of craft.” His creative method is improvisational, but his critical process is rigorous. His popular freehand drawings appear to be off-the-cuff musings, but in reality, Shrigley discards hundreds of illustrations, disseminating only the most evocative and finely-tuned images. In exploring the everyday oddities and “challenges [that await] the contemporary man,” Shrigley often turns to text out of fascination with “the slippage of meaning.” He notes that writers have had a much greater influence over his practice than other visual artists. Though Shrigley himself is not heavily invested in

social media, he recognizes that much of what makes his works resonate with people runs parallel to the draw of the internet’s most popular memes and tropes. The artist argues that his dark, confessional humor lands because he delivers “de-contextualized” messages. Just as is the case within the visual culture of social media, the shared information is validated and “re-contextualized” by the person receiving it. This allows strange or out of place images or phrases to become personal, but also communal. With this level of accessibility, Shrigley’s repertoire has managed to straddle the worlds of both common and refined art consumption.

Form Over Function Cited as the father of the American Studio Furniture Movement, Wendell Castle (1932–2018) produced a prolific body of work over the course of his six decade-long career. Castle was one of the first, and most successful, artists to seamlessly blend the aesthetic sensibilities of sculpture with the accessibility of furniture. Through his signature organic forms, the artist “invented his own visual language,” that challenged the predominant modernist insistence that form follow function. With the combined knowledge of his degrees in both industrial design and sculpture, Castle distinguished himself from other furniture artisans of the 1960s by pioneering a stack-lamination process. When pieces of wood were glued together, a more versatile, sculptural canvas emerged, allowing Castle’s designs to blossom upwards from well-established support points.

Sleepy Time Gal bed (executed 1998) illustrates many of the essential markers of Castle’s work of the 1990s, a period which saw the artist’s increased blurring of medium boundaries. Castle’s use of varying woods presents a multi-color palette. This tonal variation emphasizes the bed frame’s whimsical decorative elements, which include the silhouette of a woman outlining its headboard and the etched lyrics of Richard Whiting’s 1925 song, “Sleepy Time Gal,” along its posts. As is a feature in a number of works from the decade, the bed frame also includes small compartments and drawers that offer very little space for any meaningful storage. It has been suggested that these spaces were introduced simply “to parody the notion of function.” Thus, this piece offers a critical example of Castle’s dynamic role in shaping the lexicon of art furniture.

In the 1980s, the postmodern trends that animated the New Wave and Memphis styles encouraged Castle to shy away from stack-lamination and to begin focusing on traditional joinery methods. This led to a brief interlude in which Castle executed “fine-furniture” in the tradition of Art Deco craftsmen. By the end of the decade, however, the artist abandoned this approach and returned to his sculptural style with gusto.

Fortunato Depero Central to Futurist thought of the early twentieth century was a complete rejection of the aging aristocratic conventions and institutions that had endowed their select inheritors with excessive cultural power. In order to dismantle this self-affirming system, Futurists sought to saturate their visual landscapes with objects and images that heralded technological progress, particularly through representations of the changing nature of time and space, and its ‘inevitable’ reappraisal of cultural value. As a result of his mastery in a range of mediums, Fortunato Depero (1892–1960) came to be a prominent figure of the second generation of Italian Futurism. In 1914, inspired by Umberto Boccioni’s groundbreaking sculpture, Development of a Bottle in Space (1913), which sought to visualize a deconstructed bottle, and Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s "Futurist Manifesto," Depero moved to Rome from his home in the Italian countryside to immerse himself in the Futurist movement. While in Italy, and during his stays in the United States, the painter, sculptor, fashion designer, craftsman, and poet helped realize several ‘total works of art,’ which stood as pinnacles of Futurist philosophy. Understanding that a crafted environment could be far more effective than a crafted object, the Italian Futurists took up fabricating immersive art experiences. Mixing highbrow and lowbrow creations, these eclectic, all-enveloping spatial performances displaced dominant norms of art consumption. One such example was Depero’s dining and performance space, Cabaret del Diavolo (executed 1922), in Rome. Emulating Dante’s description of the afterlife, Depero fabricated all of the club’s aesthetic elements, such as furnishings, murals, and staff uniforms, in order to produce a completely alternate reality. Similarly, Depero’s ‘Futurist House’ in New York MARKINGS DETAIL

City featured the artist’s own “paintings, models, wall panels, pillows, interior furnishings, posters, advertising, [and] stage sets.” While not technically a ‘total work of art,’ the project was intended to function as a seedling for “a new Futurist village”–a completely inorganic community through which a viewer could achieve maximum exposure to the movement's progressive visual culture. While Futurists asserted that industrialization would absolve society of its antiquated stratifications, for the most part, Futurist artists themselves rejected methods of mass-reproduction. Instead, they perpetuated the cachet of authorship and invested in the superiority of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind objects, a sentiment which would be echoed by the various ‘studio movements’ that would rise to popularity later in the century. Depero’s Linen chest (executed c. 1928) reveals these competing urges. While the clean, bold lines of the chest’s red border and dark semi-circle legs announce an assertive modernism, the ornate inlay of its panels celebrates Depero’s own skill. While many of Depero’s contributions to the Futurist canon offer vital illustrations of the movement’s thought and practice, decorative works such as Linen chest are particularly valuable in shedding light on its internal complexity. “Center for Italian Modern Art Opens To Public February 22 With Inaugural Program Focused On Futurism.” Center for Italian Modern Art, 12 Feb. 2014. “Depero, Fortunato (1892-1960).” The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Design Since 1900, Guy Julier, Thames & Hudson, 2nd edition, 2004.

Traces of George Rickey’s Kinetic Beginnings Born from a long line of artists and engineers, George Rickey (1907–2002) seems to have been genetically predestined to pursue kinetic craftsmanship. Despite initially pursuing an education in painting, Rickey’s time serving in the Army Corps of Engineers during World War II reignited his childhood passion for mechanical operations. After completing his service and returning to his studies, Rickey first began exploring three-dimensional renderings. While the artist is well-recognized for his monumental metal kinetic works, it’s his more intimate tabletop sculptures and choice applications of color that trace Rickey’s creative origins. As a young boy, Rickey and his family moved to a small town on the Scottish coast. It was here that Rickey was first mesmerized by “the waving of branches and the trembling of stems” induced by the environment’s blustering winds. Throughout his childhood, Rickey made countless trips to the shoreline and became increasingly fascinated with the ways in which the construction of a ship not only negotiates air currents, but makes their existence visible. It has been argued that these youthful musings sparked Rickey’s career-long quest to, as the artist put it, "use movement as an expressive means, as a painter might use color."

minimalistic and geometric, the works maintain all of the essential characteristics of model ships, but the boats’ varying mechanical features later informed Rickey’s unornamented kinetic structures and his fondness for tabletop sizing, as evidenced by Three Blades (1970). While Rickey applied colors to his early kinetic works, by the 1970s he had largely omitted color as an important element of his sculptural practice. However, during the 1990s Rickey appeared to reconsider his conceptual roots. Soon after he produced his series of model ships, Rickey crafted works that tested Josef Albers’ seminal color theories on the relational exchanges between color and shape to simulate motion on a two-dimensional surface. Rickey took this framework and applied it to a three-dimensional structure by painting small color fields on geometric metal shapes and joining them to one another by wire. Through this exercise, Rickey married real and imagined motion in a single work. Though his later pieces, such as 2 Red Lines (1991), lack the same explicit theoretical references, they do subtly reveal Rickey’s reevaluation of the role that color plays in shaping a viewer’s perception of movement. Kephart, Shannon. Passages of Light and Time: George Rickey’s Life in Motion. Snite Museum of Art, 2009.

Amongst the first works to come out of Rickey’s early experimentation with sculpture was a series of 11 brass and steel model ships produced in the early- to mid-1950s. Highly

Mel Ramos’ Lessons in Art History Figurative painter Mel Ramos (1935–2018) made a name for himself as a leading figure of the first generation of American Pop artists. Alongside Ed Ruscha and Wayne Thiebaud (his former teacher), Ramos was featured in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s 1963 Pop art show, “Six More,” curated by critic Lawrence Alloway. While Ramos first began his practice emulating Abstract Expressionists such as Willem De Kooning, he quickly took to reimagining the comic book icons of his childhood. Working within this genre, Ramos found himself gravitating towards the voluptuous forms of Wonder Woman and other female superheroes. The commercial nature of these images eventually led the artist to his signature renderings of hyper-realistic nudes entwined with popular products such as Heinz ketchup bottles and Snickers candy bars, entangling notions of sex and consumption. While some evaluate these works as “satirical” and self-aware, others find no credible distinction between Ramos’ visual discussion of misogynistic representation and the male-gaze that he employs in its depiction. Ramos certainly invites the viewer to consider the social ramifications of his rhetoric, but he does nothing to discourage them from accepting his voyeuristic invitation. After several institutions and galleries refused to exhibit his mature images, in the early 1970s Ramos began working on his Salute to Art History series, which appropriated famous nudes by Velázquez, Manet, Duchamp, and others. In addition to asserting the parity of his skill with that of the masters, Ramos’ tributes brought a critical lens to the relational nature of nude painting. These portraits called into question why the eroticism of their forerunners had been absolved by virtue of their idealism, while Ramos’ female forms had been dismissed as tawdry. By applying the high-gloss fashioning of familiar commercial iconography to the masters’ templates, Ramos

seemed to argue that it was the viewer’s automatic correlation of the visual character of American advertising and media with sexual enticement that ostracized his work from the respected nude tradition. In much the same way, Ramos aligns Unfinished Painting #1 (1990) and The Drawing Lesson #5 (1990) with established art historical themes. Unfinished Painting #1 (1990) features a female nude gently figured by a classical S-curve. While the subject’s face and upper torso are rendered in hyper-saturation and with dramatic modelling, her legs and feet remain a light grayscale sketch. This deliberate abandonment of the image plays on the lore of “the unfinished masterpiece,” the likes of which include Michelangelo’s David and a countless number of Da Vinci's works. The Drawing Lesson #5 (1990) reflects the time-honored subject of the artist’s studio, as captured by works such as Matisse’s The Red Studio (1911) and Vermeer’s The Art of Painting (1666-1668). Here, however, Ramos offers a twist on the motif. The seated nude model is executed in Ramos’ slick style. In contrast, however, the lesson’s student has articulated the model in a gestural form that, when compared to her actual physicality, seems cruel and grotesque. Perhaps Ramos’ lesson has not been offered to an imagined artist but rather to the viewer. Though many critics rebuked Ramos’ hypersexualization of his female subjects, the artist revealed that high-art trends may be just as guilty of forsaking natural beauty.
