philamuseum:

Textiles are much more delicate than other works of art and often fade before they make it to a Museum. However, this extraordinary Philadelphia bedcover from the 1790s was pristinely preserved, and its colors are as vibrant as the day it was made. It will be taken down soon to prevent fading. See it before it’s gone in: “On the Leading Edge: Decorative Arts in Philadelphia, 1720–1880.” Bedcover, 1790–1810, by John Hewson

For his Banality series, Jeff Koons worked with traditional German and Italian craftsmen to enlarge the subjects and render them in gilt porcelain and polychromed wood, materials more associated with housewares and tchotchkes than contemporary art.

Happy birthday to Gustav Klimt. Today we celebrate his special day with a painting he began in 1917, but was left unfinished by his sudden death in 1918. This masterful portraitist had an incredible impact on painting with his intimate depictions of women and remarkable detailing. Has anything unfinished ever looked so good?Now on view: “Frauenbildnis (Portrait of a Woman),” 1917–18, by Gustav Klimt (On loan from The Lewis Collection)
