Art criticism

“Henri Matisse’s ‘Girl Who Has Just Passed Through a Wringer’ is good. …  Cummings’ ‘Soft Shell Crab Defending Its Mother’ is a striking bit of post-impressionism…. Alexander Couard’s ‘Battle Between a Varicose Vein and a Septic Flush’ is a trifle complicated, but he’s put a lot of feeling in his work, especially in the vein.” (“Exhibit Shows Independent Artists Deserving of Name,” March 12, 1920) “He would collect iteratively, over and over again, in a process of accumulating many copies of a single object or instrument — and in some way you have to wonder whether this was a process for him of trying to understand these objects by living with many of them.” (Pulitzer associate curator Stephanie Weissberg on Terry Adkins, St. Louis Public Radio, March 11, 2020)
