Barbara Morgan - Photographer Of Modern Dance

Barbara Morgan (July 8, 1900 – August 17, 1992) was an American photographer best known for her depictions of modern dancers. She was a co-founder of the photography magazine Aperture.Morgan is known in the visual art and dance worlds for her penetrating studies of American modern dancers Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Erick Hawkins, Jose Limon, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman and others. Morgan’s drawings, prints, watercolors and paintings were exhibited widely in California in the 1920s, and in New York and Philadelphia in the 1930s.With two young children, Douglas born in 1932 and Lloyd in 1935, Barbara sought a workable way to be both a mother and an artist. To abandon painting in favor of photography seemed extreme, but for two saving factors; first, the emergence of an idea for a future book, and second, not requiring the uninterrupted daylight hours that painting does, and one could work at night in the darkroom. Although Barbara had exposed thousands of images, she still did not consider herself a photographer because she had not completed a cycle of developing and printing her own work. Thus she set up a new studio with a darkroom at 10 East 23rd Street, overlooking Madison Square, and began experimenting with the technical and darkroom aspects of photography in 1931. Barbara learned processing from Willard and worked on other gaps in her technique, chiefly with the 4x5 Speed Graphic camera and Leica with all lenses. She worked with Harold Harvey as he was perfecting his all temperature Replenishing Fine Grain Developer 777. During this time she started to explore photomontage

Gustavo Foppiani

«Gustavo Foppiani was born the 12th july of 1925 in Piacenza and died the 5th August of 1986 in Udine.Foppiani is probably the most important artist belonging to the so called „Piacenza School“.Aesthetically speaking, he prefers a crepuscular lyricism and he uses ashen and warn tones for the passing of years on the board, that he subjects to some expert processes of getting old.
It is during the years of surrealistic and abstract landscapes, that he devotes himself to the visual research about the composition.Now, it is already present the fascination for the „symbol“ that continues also during the following phases, when the author concentrates mostly about contents, especially reflecting upon the enigma and the anxiety, creating lively sensations of mystery.
Afterwards, this symbolic-existential component is developed by Foppiani on the scope of the human figure and scenery; so, this is a narrative scenery, animated by the presence of a man, who is like a „homini lupus“.

Joan Erbe

«Born in Baltimore in 1926, Joan Erbe grew up in Windsor Hills on the West Side. Her father, a coffee salesman, often took her to circus side shows, where they were soon on a first name basis with many of the “freaks”. Her mother always encouraged her to create. As a response to a young Joan’s “I’m bored” sighs, she’d lock Joan in her room and state, “You can’t come out until you do some artwork!”
Joan attended a Maryland Institute program for children at the age of 7, studying under Perna Krick (who later became Reuben Kramer’s wife). Joan loved circus animals, and one of her paintings of elephants was published in The Baltimore Sun a year later. Helen Journeay sculpted the portrait of “Joan” at about ten years old, which now resides in the Maryland Historical Society. Ms. Erbe got involved with many older artists which further inspired her to pursue art. During her late teens, she spent summers with her aunt and uncle in upstate NY, where they hosted a variety of artists and actors, many from the Art Students League, and she eventually studied under painter Louis Bouche. The rest of the year she studied under Ann Didusch Schuler, and visiting artist Jacques Maroger. She gradually leaned towards expressionistic work.»

Minimalism - Charlotte Posenenske

Charlotte Posenenske, née Mayer (1930–1985) was a German artist associated with the minimalist movement who predominately worked in sculpture, but also produced paintings and works on paper.
Posenenske worked in a variety of mediums, her practice becoming more abstract through the course of the 1960s.While other artists of the period worked in multiples, where a finite edition of a work could be produced, Posenenske worked in series, meaning that there was no limit to the editions. Posenenske rejected the commercial art market, offering her work for sale at its material cost. Reconstructions authorised by the artist’s estate are not replicas, and they are outwardly identical to the original prototype. Only the certificate differentiates the unsigned work from other commodities.
In 1968 Posenenske published a statement in the journal Art International referencing the reproducibility of her works, and her desire for the concept and ownership of the piece to be accessible:
I make series
because I do not want to make individual pieces for individuals,
in order to have elements combinable within a system,
in order to make something that is repeatable, objective,
and because it is economical.
The series can be prototypes for mass-production.
They are less and less recognisable as «works of art.»

In addition to his artwork in Shanghai, a collection of his papers is at Syracuse University.

Evgeny Chubarov - Russian abstract art

Evgeny Iosifovich Chubarov ( 11 December 1934 – 5 December 2012) was a Russian painter, sculptor, and graphic artist.Evgeny Chubarov was born in the village of Nizhneye Bobino in Bashkiria on 11 December 1934.
He almost didn’t go to school, working on a collective farm pasturing colts as a teenager. His passion for painting appeared in childhood, partly under the influence of his father. In his youth, Chubarov wanted to have a prestigious profession, so went to his uncle’s house in Zlatoust to study to become an engraver at a vocational school there. After graduating from the school, Chubarov entered the army and served five years in the Baltic Fleet.In 1959, Chubarov went to Saratov and then to Zagorsk (now Sergiev Posad), where he worked at the restoration studio of the sculptor Dmitry Tsaplin. In 1961, he married Lyudmila Gukovich, a pediatrician who worked in Istra. They lived in rented rooms that they had found by chance.
