|Maternité, by Pablo Picasso|
From there I went to the Jewish Museum, to take in a show on Vuillard. I felt that the paintings on display did not represent the best of Vuillard's work, though the show was interesting enough from the point of view of his relationships with dealers and patrons.
Finally, I visited The City Quilter, a quilting store and art quilt gallery on West 25th Street. Featured until June 23 is the work of Lenore Crawford. Two images of her work are shown below. About sixteen of her pieces are on display, ranging in price from about $1500 to $2500. They measured two to three feet in either dimension. Technically, they are fused, raw-edge appliqué, using commercial fabrics, heavy machine quilting, and a minimal amount of paint to enhance shading. Her sense of composition and colour makes her work very special.
