        Original costume design for Tchaikovsky's opera The Queen of Spades [Pikovaya Dama (Pique Dame)] by the noted Russian artist Alexandre Benois for the character of the Kaufmannstochter (the Merchant's Daughter) in Act I, scene 1

      - Watercolour, ink, and gouache on wove paper. 312 x 244 mm. Signed by the artist in full and dated 1941 in pencil at lower right. With pencilled notes in Benois's hand including "N 64" in red pencil to upper right corner. Slightly worn, soiled, and creased; remnants of adhesive to corners of verso. Pique Dame, in three acts, op. 68, by Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky to a libretto by Modest Tchaikovsky and the composer after Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin's novella (1833) was first performed in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre on December 7/19 1890."The entire opera was composed in Florence in 44 days of frenzied inspiration (30 January-14 March 1890), the composer freely supplementing his brother's text at the dictate of his hectic muse. By mid-June the orchestration was complete and the opera had been submitted to the theatre and to Tchaikovsky's publisher Jurgenson. The inordinate speed of composition was matched by an unusually tight construction and a quality of imagination unmatched in its way in the whole of Russian opera. The composer's many letters to his brother librettist abound with expressions of happy amazement at his own powers of disciplined invention: 'Either I am horribly mistaken, Modya, or the opera is a masterpiece' was the final verdict - one which the international operatic audience has ratified. Earlier he had written 'I am so far firmly convinced that The Queen of Spades is a good, and mainly, a very original piece, speaking not from the musical point of view but in general'." Richard Taruskin in Grove Music Online.Benois is considered a seminal influence on modern ballet set and costume design. "In 1901, [he] was appointed scenic director of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the performance space for the Imperial Russian Ballet. He moved to Paris in 1905 and thereafter devoted most of his time to stage design and decor. During these years, his work with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes was groundbreaking. His sets and costumes for the productions of Les Sylphides (1909), Giselle (1910), and Petrushka (1911), are counted among his greatest triumphs. Although Benois worked primarily with the Ballets Russes, he also collaborated with the Moscow Art Theatre and other notable theatres of Europe." Wikipedia [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photo Album]: Female World War II Pilot Trainer

      Canada 1941 - Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 15". Screw bound black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 451 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" to 8" x 10", with captions. Near fine album with some rubbing with near fine photographs.An album compiled in 1941-42 by Marion Angelina Gillies (1915--64), a pilot and one of only a few Canadian women certified as an aviation instructor. She worked for her father's private flying school, filling a void left by the experienced, mostly male, training pilots who were drawn into the task of preparing pilots for military duty. A newspaper clipping pasted at the rear of the album shows Marion with her father and another aviatrix who was also training to become a private aviation instructor.Gillies Flying School operated out of Barker Field at Portage La Prairie, Manitoba which was also selected as the location for the No. 7 Air Observers School. Recruits trained in the Avro Anson airplane for eight weeks and learned basic navigation techniques and also studied aerial photography. Based on the photos in the album, Marion clearly had unique access to the training facilities and a close relationship with many of the pilot training instructors, who likely formerly worked for her father. For example, included are several candid photos of Russell Leslie "Ginger" Coote (1898--1970), a legendary World War I fighter pilot and Bush pilot. The BCATP (The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan) was a massive, joint military air crew training program created by the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand during World War II. Canada was chosen as the primary location for the training schools because of its ideal weather and wide-open spaces suitable for flight and navigation training, as well as minimal threat from either the Luftwaffe or Japanese fighter aircraft. Schools and facilities were set up at 231 locations across Canada.The album is also filled with numerous photos of trainees. Among them is a group photo of the first class of observers at #7 A.O.S.: a caption pasted into the book names each of the graduates. Another group photo is captioned "New Zealand class at P.A." There are photographs of top-ranking officials visiting #2 A.O.S. in Edmonton in 1941, including a photograph of Prince George, Duke of Kent (1902--42) with other military leaders, as well as two photographs of Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon MacKenzie King (1874--1950) touring the installation. Another photo shows someone practicing jumping from a plane with a caption which reads "bail" underneath it. One photo of a plane with its front end nose to the ground reads, "one of the several reasons why you shouldn't over run your field and then slam on the brakes." There are also photos of fun and leisure time with a photo of Marion drinking from a flask and the men playing poker. She also kept photos of other aerial of locations around Canada.Throughout the album various planes are shown including Ryan S.T., Airspeed Oxford, Avro Anson, Republic p-43, Lockheed "Yippy" P-38, Boeing B-17, Spitfire, Curtiss Helldiver, E.F.T.S. Tiger Moth, Bristol Blemheim Mk. VI., Consolidated B-24, Brewster Buffalo, Curtiss P-40, Gee Bee A, Eaglerock A-2, General Aristocrat IIIc, Boeing 40b4, Flamingo G-2, American Eagle OX5, Bristol Monolane of 1918, Martin Bomber MB-I 1918, British R.E. 8, among many others. Some of the airplanes are photographed on the runway, but there are also numerous photographs of planes in flight as well as the interior with photos of pilots at the yoke. The album also includes photos of a variety of Naval ships, including the U.S.S. Raleigh, U.S.S. Barracuda (submarine), U.S.S. Enterprise, U.S.S. Preston, U.S.S. Idaho, U.S.S. Wyoming, and HMCS Kenora.There are a number of photos of a fire on May 21, 1941 at A.O.S. Portage La Prairie hanger number two.

Er zählt zu den bekanntesten deutschen Künstlern der Gegenwart. Seine Bildgegenstände zeichnen sich durch suggestive Kraft und archaische Monumentalität aus. Lüpertz dringt darauf, den Darstellungsgegenstand mit einer archetypischen Aussage seines Daseins festzuhalten. Viele seiner Werke werden dem Neoexpressionismus zugeschrieben. Von 1988 bis 2009 war Lüpertz Rektor an der Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. In der Öffentlichkeit stilisiert er sich als exzentrischen Maler, der seinen eigenen Geniekult betreibt.

        [Photo Album]: Female World War II Pilot Trainer

      Canada, 1941. Near Fine. Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 15". Screw bound black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 451 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" to 8" x 10", with captions. Near fine album with some rubbing with near fine photographs.An album compiled in 1941-42 by Marion Angelina Gillies (1915--64), a pilot and one of only a few Canadian women certified as an aviation instructor. She worked for her father's private flying school, filling a void left by the experienced, mostly male, training pilots who were drawn into the task of preparing pilots for military duty. A newspaper clipping pasted at the rear of the album shows Marion with her father and another aviatrix who was also training to become a private aviation instructor.Gillies Flying School operated out of Barker Field at Portage La Prairie, Manitoba which was also selected as the location for the No. 7 Air Observers School. Recruits trained in the Avro Anson airplane for eight weeks and learned basic navigation techniques and also studied aerial photography. Based on the photos in the album, Marion clearly had unique access to the training facilities and a close relationship with many of the pilot training instructors, who likely formerly worked for her father. For example, included are several candid photos of Russell Leslie "Ginger" Coote (1898--1970), a legendary World War I fighter pilot and Bush pilot. The BCATP (The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan) was a massive, joint military air crew training program created by the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand during World War II. Canada was chosen as the primary location for the training schools because of its ideal weather and wide-open spaces suitable for flight and navigation training, as well as minimal threat from either the Luftwaffe or Japanese fighter aircraft. Schools and facilities were set up at 231 locations across Canada.The album is also filled with numerous photos of trainees. Among them is a group photo of the first class of observers at #7 A.O.S.: a caption pasted into the book names each of the graduates. Another group photo is captioned "New Zealand class at P.A." There are photographs of top-ranking officials visiting #2 A.O.S. in Edmonton in 1941, including a photograph of Prince George, Duke of Kent (1902--42) with other military leaders, as well as two photographs of Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon MacKenzie King (1874--1950) touring the installation. Another photo shows someone practicing jumping from a plane with a caption which reads "bail" underneath it. One photo of a plane with its front end nose to the ground reads, "one of the several reasons why you shouldn't over run your field and then slam on the brakes." There are also photos of fun and leisure time with a photo of Marion drinking from a flask and the men playing poker. She also kept photos of other aerial of locations around Canada.Throughout the album various planes are shown including Ryan S.T., Airspeed Oxford, Avro Anson, Republic p-43, Lockheed "Yippy" P-38, Boeing B-17, Spitfire, Curtiss Helldiver, E.F.T.S. Tiger Moth, Bristol Blemheim Mk. VI., Consolidated B-24, Brewster Buffalo, Curtiss P-40, Gee Bee A, Eaglerock A-2, General Aristocrat IIIc, Boeing 40b4, Flamingo G-2, American Eagle OX5, Bristol Monolane of 1918, Martin Bomber MB-I 1918, British R.E. 8, among many others. Some of the airplanes are photographed on the runway, but there are also numerous photographs of planes in flight as well as the interior with photos of pilots at the yoke. The album also includes photos of a variety of Naval ships, including the U.S.S. Raleigh, U.S.S. Barracuda (submarine), U.S.S. Enterprise, U.S.S. Preston, U.S.S. Idaho, U.S.S. Wyoming, and HMCS Kenora.There are a number of photos of a fire on May 21, 1941 at A.O.S. Portage La Prairie hanger number two. According to newspaper accounts, a trainee at the school was killed when he crashed his Tiger Moth training plane into the hangar, also destroying six Avro-Anson planes. A series of four photos of the fire carries the caption "four reasons why airplanes should not spin out of climbing turns." The album contains another dozen photos showing the burning hangars and attempts to save planes, along with the aftermath. One photo shows a close up of the remains of the airplane with the caption: "the root of all evil. The remains of the pilot and Moth."Marion included a wide variety of airplane crashes, some more serious than others. The caption under one reads, "Plop! And another Tiger Moth bit the dust!" Another is more gruesome, with two photos showing "remains of a Cessna and its crew after a wing blew off." Marion and Fred Gillies likely were pulled into military service when the Canadian government shut down civilian flying schools in 1942 as part of gas rationing efforts.While there is no definitive proof within the album that Gillies was training military pilots, all of the context seems to indicate that this was likely. An extensive and interesting collection of aviation photography from an early aviatrix during World War II.

Just before he died at age 99 in 2003, Hirschfeld wrote: "I have lived almost my whole life on the outskirts of Harlem … Harlem was as familiar and as accessible to me as the blocks around your house are to you, or the fields around your homestead, or the ice floes around your igloo." He had the entire set of his <i>Harlem</i> lithographs framed on the hallway wall leading to his studio.</p>
