Small Wonders: Late Gothic Boxwood Microcarvings from the Low Countries

Small Wonders: Late Gothic Boxwood Microcarvings from the Low CountriesPublished on the occasion of an exhibition that opened today at the Met Cloisters, this book and the tiny treasures it holds offer up the perfect dose of amazement and escape during a time in which our daily tasks can seem unbearably large. 'Small Wonders' is all about prayer nuts: miniscule boxwood carvings from the late-Gothic period that depict religious scenes and texts...

Paul Gauguin: Ramblings of a Wannabe Painter

Paul Gauguin: Ramblings of a Wannabe Painter'Ramblings of a Wannabe Painter,' written in 1903 by Paul Gauguin just months before his death, may seem like an absurd title to the contemporary reader.

Reproduced from staff favorite, Masterworks: Rare and Beautiful Chess Sets of the World, featured this weekend in the Wall Street Journal, this 1830 set is from the Jon Crumiller Collection in the position "after 23.... Rd2, in the game Georg Rotlewi vs. Akiba Rubinstein, Lodz, 1907/1908." Crumiller notes, "The standard in John Company sets is that the kings and queens are elephants mounted by royal/upper-class riders on howdahs (i.e. seats or platforms, often with railings and canopies), usually accompanied by mahouts (elephant trainers/caretakers)..." > > more > >
