ByNancy Hass June 22, 2018 THE IMAGE OF the artist feverishly working alone as first light dawns through the tall, grimy windows of the atelier dies hard. No matter how monumental or unwieldy their creations, we prefer to imagine artists as solitary figures, their hands stained and raw: Rodin in his aerie in Meudon scratching at half-carved marble torsos; Bacon hunched over a giant canvas in South Kensington amid detritus; Calder in Connecticut, beavering away beneath a wave of bent wire. Reality, of course, is more crowded. Sculpture and assemblage have grown to immense proportions in recent years as the art business itself has ballooned. As new techniques, materials and computer-assisted … [Read more...] about Are Fabricators the Most Important People in the Art World?

Closing Date: June 16, 2018 Vineyard Theater, 108 E. 15th St. 212-353-0303 More Information ByBen Brantley May 23, 2018 Tony Yazbeck is a rarity in show business. He’s a complete, romantic dancing actor, or acting dancer. Like such hallowed predecessors as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, he’s as expressive with his twirls and jetés as he is with his face and voice, bringing balletic wonder to ordinary rituals of love and courtship. Unfortunately, there are few shows around these days to provide a worthy showcase for the distinctive talents of Mr. Yazbeck, who received a Tony nomination as a pirouetting sailor (played by Kelly on screen) in the delightful 2014 Broadway revival of “On the Town.” Fans awaiting … [Read more...] about Review: Dirty Dancing to Henry James in ‘The Beast in the Jungle’

For two years, they spent weekends in Hampton Bays, living aboard their 34-foot Sea Ray Sundancer powerboat at a local marina. But with the ceiling in their two staterooms too low to stand up, “it was claustrophobic,” said Ms. Condon, 63, an office manager. When they were in the Hamptons, they would scour tag sales, go out for brunch and visit open houses, limiting their search to waterfront properties. “We were hoping to have a place with a dock,” said Dr. Condon, 71, an endocrinologist who used to race … [Read more...] about For Some in the Hamptons, It’s Not a Home Without a Dock

The two men have written a memoir of fin-de-millennium excess (blowtorched Steinway, anyone?). ByPenelope Green April 10, 2018 HAMDEN, Conn. — By the time he was 45, Murray Moss had worked as a mime, an actor in an experimental theater troupe (he once performed a three-act play folded inside a cardboard box), a gallery assistant and a fashion retailer, among other careers. He had the face of a monk, the obsessive auto-didacticism of a collector and a habit of speaking in fulsome paragraphs. He was compulsively tidy. He loved Italian factories. And by extension, Italian product design, which he studied with typical zeal using an elaborate system of index cards, shelter magazines and data gleaned from four years … [Read more...] about The ‘Kanye West of Furniture’ Is Now Nesting in the ’Burbs
