Where in the World is Janey Waney?
In 1969, when Alexander Calder created his renowned Janey Waney, he was doing it for placement in a shopping mall on Long Island. Little did he know that, five decades later, it would have traveled from Gramercy Park in Manhattan to the European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht, Netherland, from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to Jardin Des Tuileries, on the grounds of the Louvre in Paris France, where it is currently on display for the FIAC International Contemporary Art Fair.
HENRI MATISSE - ULYSSES
In 1935, George Macy, the founder of the Limited Editions Club, offered a commission to Henri Matisse to illustrate an exclusive edition of the novel, Ulysses by James Joyce. Ulysses was initially serialized between 1918 and 1920, and published as a novel in 1922. Some labeled it pornographic and it was banned in the United States until 1934.
