      I made it to the show and I have to say it far exceeded my expectations. If you have a chance to see it I recommend it highly.

      The image I wanted to see, which I assumed was an ink drawing on a single sheet, turned out to be a 40-foot ink scroll. It was sublime and for this week is my new favorite painting (but I fall in love a lot).

      For me, the joy of the show was the celebration of solitude which was described as a historic element of Chinese art, a way to recollect oneself. As someone who loves the solitude that drawing provides, it was a joy to connect with fellow artists from several hundred years ago.

      All of the following images are from the single scroll I fell in love with.

    I will also visit The Cooper Hewitt Museum this week to see: SOPHIA CROWNFIELD: DRAWN FROM NATURE. This looks terrific and runs through July 31, 2022.

    “From the 1890s to the 1920s, Sophia Crownfield (American, 1862–1929) designed prints for some of the most prominent silk and wallpaper manufacturers in the United States. Her drawings of flowers range from delicate graphite sketches to vivid color studies, revealing her obvious ease with different types of specimens. Through progressive stages of rework, she developed designs for patterns and polished drawings for specific end uses. Examples of Cheney Brothers’ printed silks, shown alongside these richly detailed drawings, reveal how Crownfield’s process transformed floral stems into the fashionable patterns of the period.”

      Saw it last week. It is a relatively small show, but it is worth seeing. We took our time to look closely at everything. On display are some amazing books and manuals on anatomy. If you are in the LA area next week, get on up there!

        Glad to hear it. I know Will made his way over there – he posted on his Instagram feed. I wonder if it will travel to NYC.
