Artists’ Aura

Arnold Newman’s portraits of the most loved and known artists of the 20th century, caught my eye at Howard Greenberg Gallery‘s booth at The Art Show

Spent the past week strategically catching as many of the art fairs and art happenings around NYC. Through the nearly constant side-stepping to dodge being an extra in someone’s art selfie or instagram post, I can’t help but wonder how many of the artists that fill the booths today will actually make it into the history courses and how many are leftover having their moment now that is just as fleeting as the flash on the camera that comes between today’s viewer and any true experience with art.
