art vlog: not all art belongs in a museum
I’m in this class and there’s this rift in the class between artists who use the internet for displaying and creating work and artists who don’t think that is legitimate. My classmate vlogs her thoughts in a very calculated way, bypassing the institutions of art historianship and publishing papers.
My dearest soulmate, @tiffanyvillalpando sent me a perfectly personalized care package and I’m crying because it has so many favorite things. This is so very much the best and greatly appreciated. 💕
This lovely vellum manuscript copy of Francis Bacon’s Of Gardens was illuminated by Alberto Sangorski (1862-1932) in 1904. Sangorski was persuaded by his younger brother Francis to take up writing and illuminating. Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe established a bindery in 1901 and Alberto worked with them as an illuminator. They became famous for their jeweled bindings and illuminated manuscripts provided by Alberto. The bindery’s “Great Omar” is legendary for having been lost on the Titanic. Francis drowned in tragic accident shortly afterwards. Alberto Sangorski is perhaps more well-known for his illuminations of Tennyson’s, Shakespeare’s, Kipling’s, and Keats’s works.
Atmore Beach first collected this book in 1956. He corresponded with Stanley Bray, George Sutcliffe’s nephew and then head of F. Sangorski & G. Sutcliffe Bookbinders, about creating a personal book plate and the value of Alberto Sangorski’s early manuscripts. Beach had the enclosure for Of Gardens specially designed and his name can be seen along the tail edge of the box. This manuscript came to us through the Charlotte Smith Collection.
