December 15, 2022 : Wondercab Mini (31A)
I’d meant to mention, at the end of my piece last week on EDWARD SNOW’s capaciously generous take on Breugel and Vermeer, how Snow, in another of his capacities as one of our finest Rilke translators, has just published a gorgeous new rendition of the poet’s only novel, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, prefaced by a bracingly luminous and revelatory introductory essay.
Which in turn also allows me the opportunity to remind followers of this Cabinet in the New York area of the ongoing existence of two shows of work by artists recently featured in these pages.
And FEDERICO SOLMI’s prodigious multimedia retrospective (everything from pastel and painting through video and virtual reality) at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey (just an hour’s commute out of Penn Station), through February 26th .
So do yourselves proud and celebrate the coming new year by partaking of all three. And note that the latter two feature catalogs, available from the respective institutions, with essays by me.
For that matter, remember that my latest book, A Trove of Zohars, with its footnote delirium, is available at the publisher Hat & Beard’s website (use this link and include the code “TROVE20” at checkout for a 20% discount).
Enough! See you next week, with Mondrian upside down and right-side up, and more!
