San Gimignano, Tuscan hill fortress. By Paul Goldfinger ©  Re-posted 2013.

 

San Gimignano is a medieval hill town near Siena.  It was founded in the fifth century BC as an Etruscan village. To protect the town, stone walls and tall towers were constructed and still exist–a tribute to Italian erectile engineering skills.

Stop by our rear  garden at 113 Mt. Hermon Way to see the metal sculpture called “The Etruscan Horse” by America sculptor Jo Ubogy.  Here is a link regarding that Ocean Grove work of outdoor art.

Princeton University, August 11, 201`6. From the current exhibit "Material Legacy"

Princeton University, August 11, 2016., from the current exhibit “A Material Legacy”

By Paul Goldfinger, Photography Editor @Blogfinger.

Carl Hoffman and I made our annual pilgrimage to the Princeton University Art Museum. They have a superb collection of photography donated by David McAlpin, Class of 1920  (1897-1989.)  He began his collection in the 1920’s and he knew many of the greats personally including Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keefe and Eliot Porter.

The current exhibit, celebrating the legacy of McAlpin, consists of 43 prints  from the collection including one of the most famous images “Moonrise Over Hernandez”—1941 by Ansel Adams.  We posted a piece about that (see link below—“Vanishing Magic.”).

Edward Stieglitz was featured in the exhibit. He published the magazine Camera Work where all the images were beautiful photogravures and which are collectibles today.  He was Georgia O’Keeffe’s husband as well as a famous photographer and a gallery owner in NYC who brought many important European painters to the attention of the American public.

We also saw a multimedia display of contemporary art called “A Material Legacy.”

In addition were items from their permanent collection including a Marilyn Monroe painting by Andy Warhol, a portrait of Jean Cocteau by Modigliani, and an imposing portrait of George Washington by Charles Wilson Peale.

Marilyn’s portrait was made by Warhol after her death using a movie still from a 1953  film Niagra.  He coupled that photo with a variety of new printing methods.

The Museum is a short walk across campus from the Nassau Street entrance, and admission is free.  There are lots of eateries and coffee shops in the neighborhood.  It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there and park.
