Appreciation …

… Tabletop worlds | About Last Night.

In order to divert those of you who, like me, are staying home these days, I’ve been posting images of some of the prints and paintings that hang on the walls of the Manhattan apartment that I shared for many years with my late wife Hilary—the “Teachout Museum,” as a friend calls it. My latest image is Piazza Rotonda, a 1994 color aquatint and etching by William Bailey, who died last week at the august age of eighty-nine. Bailey, a painter and printmaker who also taught at Yale, was an artist’s artist, never widely recognized but greatly admired nonetheless, both by his colleagues and by a few discerning critics, most notably Robert Hughes and Hilton Kramer.
Fine work I did not know of.
