A ‘French Twist’ takes shape at DelArt By Burton Wasserman


“Boulevard de Strasbourg Corsets,” 1912, Eugène Atget (1857–1957). Printing-out paper, 8 3/4 x 7 inches. Collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. In the “French Twist” exhibition.

ormally, passing moments of time are invisible realities. However, they take shape with crisp precision as photographs in an exhibition, currently on view at the Delaware Art Museum on Kentmere Parkway in Wilmington. It is titled “French Twist: Masterworks of Photography from Atget to Man Ray.” The unique atmosphere of the region and the distinctive character of the French citizenry in the early 20th century come alive in images made by brilliantly creative artists. With cameras in their hands and sensitive eyes in their heads, they made the era and the locale as memorable as talented painters had done with brushes and colors in the centuries that preceded them. The elusively fleeting sense of change that marked the character and the appearance of the period can be felt in pictures that both document with objectivity and express emotionally the essence of

the time. Without question, realizing that what is often the Paris of today looks and called the drift of change is feels very different from the actually a constant factor in sights that loom up in the the human temperament.

is labeled “Diversions.” It casts attention on sources of recreation that were available to people seeking amusement within the environment of the urban scene. Bing and Brassaï, in particular, chronicled the appeal provided to the upper class by the dance hall, night club, theater and indulgent sex trade during the time still remembered to this day as the Belle Epoque. The fourth section of the exhibition draws attention to the great master of what he liked to call “the decisive moment.” This was the brilliant photo-journalist 17 classic blow-ups of negatives originally made with a compact

But they are nevertheless evidence of factual truths crying out for compassionate understanding, heartconsciousness, several of the artists felt sympathy and social justice. included in the exhibition, such The last section of the show as Ilse Bing and André Kertèsz, deals primarily with portraits, aimed their lenses on the existence representational treatments of the

figure and assorted experimental approaches to photographic inventiveness. Among the items highlighted in this area, there is an abstract composite and darkroom solarized prints by Man Ray and a playfully distorted impression made with a reflection in a curved mirror by Andrë Kertèsz. Visitors are especially likely to be impressed with the revelatory power of the black-white-gray coloration in the pictures on display. The impact they make on one’s sensibilities is, in many ways, more intense than combinations of such hues as red, yellow and blue.

This summer, one of the first This change to the Mann big changes that the audience Center was made after 10 years will notice is the brand-new of discussion in time for this Skyline Stage, which looks summer’s programs, which will

be presented by a variety of musical artists. The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform in the renovated existing space. When the Skyline Stage is ready to be used, there will be two concerts by a band from Iceland called Sigur Rós. The performance will highlight the architectural changes at the Mann taking place on four additional acres of Fairmount Park leased by the city. The architectural changes have largely been the work of MGA Partners, Architect. Pop music fans watching the bands from the new area will be closer to the artists. The lawn will be enlarged after some terrace seats are eliminated so that the grassy area is closer to the theater. Of the approximately 5,000 green plastic seats, 3,000 were eliminated and replaced with 2,000 new ones. The remaining space was filled with

lawn and standing room. Audiences listening to the Philadelphia and other musicians play in the area known as “the lawn” pay very low prices for tickets and traditionally picnic and, often, bring their children to enjoy the music. They share the space with a sheltered area where higher paying audiences sit under a roof. Both groups sitting in this area will find new video screens mounted on an angular shed and a better audio system to add to their enjoyment of the show. Cameras will capture close-ups of instrumentalists, so audience members, particularly young people and children can see each instrument being played. Paying for the improvements includes the results of fundraising drives, which have collected $12.5 million so far. The drive has a goal of about $16 million. There has also been $3 million

raised from the city, $2.5 million from the state as well as $1.75 million from the William Penn Foundation. The Mann opened in 1976 to replace the Robin Hood Dell as the local summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra. It carried on the tradition of the Dell in providing a place for patrons to picnic and bring their children while they listened to the music on “the lawn.” At that point about 20 Philadelphia Orchestra concerts a summer were presented at the Mann. The concerts originally were free but the center started charging a small fee a few years ago. In the past few years, the audience size has become smaller. — Diane Fiske can be contacted at dfiske_19118@yahoo. com.

All Creatures Exhibit & Sale


This exhibition examines the fascination that the island of Monhegan and its people held for both Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) and Jamie Wyeth (b. 1946). Though the two artists never met, Kent and Wyeth’s paintings, when viewed together, depict a century’s worth of Monhegan life and landmarks. The exhibition will include examples of some of Wyeth’s most recent paintings and a number of works from his personal collection of Kent’s coastal views of the Monhegan headlands. Wyeth’s paintings, on the other hand, are often created with his “back to the sea,” as he describes it, focusing on the people who inhabit the island. Drawn from both public and private collections, the exhibition features oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and one of Kent’s sketchbooks from Monhegan. CHESTER CO.
