the art of richard barthé.


RICHARD BARTHÉ, BORN JANUARY TWENTY-EIGHT, NINETEEN-HUNDRED AND ONE, WAS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN SCULPTOR AND WAS A FIGURE DURING THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE. HIS WORK FOCUSED ON BLACK SUBJECTS AND SPIRITUALITY OF MAN. "ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN TRYING  TO CAPTURE THE SPIRITUAL QUALITY I SEE AND FEEL IN PEOPLE, AND I FEEL THAT THE HUMAN FIGURE AS GOD MADE IT, IS THE BEST MEANS OF EXPRESSING THIS SPIRIT IN MAN."

technicolor noir: leave her to heaven.

 
Even though summer is far from my favorite, I couldn't resist talking about the technicolor dreamscape that is Gene Tierney and Leave Her to Heaven, and as Martin Scorsese said best, "Gene Tierney is one of the most underrated actresses of the Golden Era." And I think this film proves that very statement.
