The Goddess & the Mud Pot

It would have been easy to assemble a calendar

illustrated

with photographs of baby animals or beautiful gardens or classic this

or that — or even a learn-a-word-a-day calendar. But the U.S.

1 staff decided that our Year 2000 calendar would feature images of

inspiring art works created during the last 1,000 years. And by

including

in the mix works created in all parts of the world, and in all media,

we believed we could find at least one stunning representative of

each of 10 centuries in the permanent collections of museums in our

area.

So we gave ourselves a crash course on the art history of the second

millennium and reviewed the holdings at art sites from Newark to

Trenton

to Philadelphia, then took our figurative cup next door to borrow

some sugar — images, that is. In the process, we learned much

more about each of the possible image sources and encountered any

number of obliging museum representatives who were eager to help.

While looking back, we also pondered the future: How might art in

the upcoming third millennium be regarded by the time the fourth

millennium

is imminent? But first, there was the 11th century to deal with,

specifically,

a calendar photo of 11th-century art. We knew that as we moved closer

to our own century, we’d have no difficulty finding images: 20th

century

art is all over. And before reaching the plenitude of 19th century

Impressionists, we would travel through the Renaissance, after all,

and fabled dynasties of the East.

Now although we acquired twice the number of images required to

illustrate

it, or a total of two, we can state with authority that 11th-century

art is hard to come by. From the New Jersey State Museum came an image

of a ceramic vessel, circa 600-1000 A.D., unearthed at the Abbott

Farm site, in Trenton. While that vessel certainly qualified for our

January page illustration, the graceful figurative sculpture from

Tibet offered from the collection of the Newark Museum, dating from

the same time period, is much more than just a pretty face. We could

not resist making the exquisitely crafted gilded goddess, "Tara

with Throne and Prabhamandala," our "Miss January."

This work is just a fraction of the Newark Museum’s renowned Asian

art collection. (A review of the current Tibetan art exhibition

appeared

in the November 24 issue of U.S. 1.) The museum’s 90th anniversary

celebration continues through early January, and right about now,

an impulse train trip to Newark could offer a calming respite from

holiday overload. In sampling the museum’s Tibetan holdings, visitors

can also get a sense of its distinguished American art collection.

For February, and the 12th century, we traveled to West Africa in

choosing an image of "Seated Man," a terra cotta sculpture

in the Art Museum, Princeton University. By March, or the 13th

century,

France held the monopoly as the country of origin for possible images.

We had the enviable task of choosing from among reliquaries, or

chasses

— church-shaped containers for saints’ relics; stained glass

works;

and a medieval marble cloister with elements from a French abbey and

a monastery’s Romanesque fountain, all installed at the Philadelphia

Museum of Art. Although a stained and painted glass rondel depicting

a Biblical story was vividly beautiful, as was a rendering of St.

George in the same medium, we selected an image of a gilt copper and

enamel reliquary whose sides in relief memorialize the martyrdom of

St. Stephen.

Again from the Art Museum, Princeton University, came

the 14th century work seen on our April page: an ivory casket whose

relief work shows scenes from the romances. Both May and June feature

15th century images — from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the

first is a detail from a Chinese handscroll more than 30 feet long,

"Bamboo Under Spring Rain," a brush painting with an unusually

low perspective, by Hsia Ch’ang, a specialist at painting bamboo.

June brings a page from a 15th-century psalterium, a rare and

sought-after

item that is the first extant dated printed book. An image of this

book, published in Mainz, Germany, by Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer,

was loaned from the Scheide Library, the privately funded collection

of Princeton’s William H. Scheide, housed in the university’s

department

of rare books and special collections. The department comprises five

divisions housed in two libraries on campus: manuscripts, rare books,

visual materials, public policy papers and university archives, and

the rare books and manuscripts cataloging team. Its main office is

on the first floor of Firestone Library; in addition to weekday hours,

exhibition galleries are open weekends from noon to 5 p.m.

Curiously, the 16th century was almost as difficult to fill as the

11th. Here, the Philadelphia Museum of Art offered a choice that

included

a suit of steel and brass armor in the German Renaissance style and

a portrait of "Cosimo di Medici as Orpheus" by Agnolo

Bronzino.

But we opted for a Dosso Dossi oil painting, "The Holy Family,

with the Young Saint John the Baptist and Two Donors," a touching

scene of Virgin and Child made more touching by the cat that walks

sedately across our line of sight.

For our 17th century image, Peter Paul Rubens’ monumental "Cupid

Supplicating Jupiter" was the easy choice, frequently used by

the Princeton Art Museum as its signature work. Known as "The

Forbes Rubens," the painting is the promised gift of Malcolm S.

Forbes, Class of ’41; Malcolm S. Forbes Jr. ’70; and Christopher

Forbes

’72.

Images of art that originated on opposite sides of the world vied

for our 18th century page — a silver teapot made in Philadelphia

or an Edo period porcelain tea jar from Japan. The tea jar with enamel

glazes is unconventional in approach: rather than covering the entire

surface of the jar with intricate detail, as was common in Chinese

porcelain, this artist chose a single subject and treated it with

quiet elegance.

Predictably, the 19th century opened up for us a treasure trove of

images from museums and historical institutions throughout the area.

From historic Morven, on Stockton Street in Princeton, came a

portrait,

"Commodore Robert Field Stockton," by Samuel Bell Waugh. Built

as the home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence —

Commodore

Stockton’s grandfather — Morven served for a while as the

governor’s

mansion. Morven is now closed until the summer for the first of two

restoration phases that will convert it into a museum of regional

significance.

Drawing further on the works at the Princeton University art museum,

we considered Albert Bierstadt’s panoramic scene, "Mount Adams,

Washington," but chose instead Claude Monet’s "Waterlilies

and Japanese Bridge" for the great affection in which it is held

by so many regular visitors to the museum. It also beat out Van Gogh’s

much-loved "Sunflowers" from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Known for both its burgeoning Russian art and Japonisme collections,

New Brunswick’s Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Museum made three esteemed

Japanese wood block prints available, from which we chose Utagawa

Tonokuni III’s "Fifty-Three Stations of Tokaido: Hara," a

second 19th century image, for the November page. Aubrey Beardsley’s

graphically stunning pen-and-ink drawing, created for the cover of

"The Yellow Book," was made available by Princeton

University’s

Rare Books and Special Collections, but it became a beautiful

runner-up.

Last came December, the month designated for 20th

century

art. With the range of images available to represent this last century

of the millennium, having front and back covers as image sites to

supplement the 12 months was a godsend. For December, we chose a

photograph

of Marcel Duchamp’s mixed media masterpiece, "The Bride Stripped

Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass)." This seminal work

is part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s extensive Duchamp

collection

— a result of his relationship with Philalphia patron Katherine

Dreier. Also known, or notorious, for his 1913 Armory Show

cubist-style

painting, "Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2," as well as

his enigmatic "ready-mades" such as "Fountain" (1917),

Duchamp eschewed convention and championed the unorthodox for much

of this century, and is widely credited for revolutionizing thinking

about art.

Finally, our front cover shows Pablo Picasso’s familiar painting,

"Three Musicians," courtesy of the Philadelphia Museum of

Art. A work in oil, it yet suggests his cut and pasted collages,

conveying

through the three characters the importance of music in the Cubist

canon and in suggesting the theme of the artist (Picasso as Harlequin)

as performer, it also reflects this artist’s life-long tradition of

autobiographical work.

From Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, we show inside the back cover

a recent sculpture installation, "If It Were Time," by J.

Seward Johnson Jr. In this cast bronze and aluminum work, Johnson

presents an astonishing three-dimensional homage to Claude Monet’s

1867 oil painting, "Terrace at Sainte Andresse." Two images

from the James A. Michener Museum of Art, Doylestown, were also

contenders

for a 20th-century spot with works by Edward W. Redfield and Joseph

Pearson Jr. The museum is home to a leading collection of 19th and

20th century regional American art including Pennsylvania

Impressionists,

as well as an interactive exhibition honoring maverick Bucks County

artists, authors, and composers.

Amazing — the breadth of visual art produced in this millennium

and available in museums and related sites just a short drive, or

walk, away. It encompasses art produced all over the globe,

practically

showing waves of creativity and creation, and suggesting both the

independence and the interdependence of art and artists. But now,

"the past is prologue." We are poised at the edge of the third

millennium — and who knows what art will evolve from the art of

the last thousand years?

Will third-millennium art be a reaction to, or a continuation of?

Will we recognize the art of the past in that of the future? If much

of this millennium was the age of the "white male genius,"

could the next one turn out to be a time of the "multi-color

female

genius"? Will cyber, or digital, art come to the fore? If not,

what media will be dominant in the next millennium? Will the

paintbrush

become extinct? Who will the artists be? Who will art critics be in

the next millennium, and what expertise will they need? How about

art consumers — will "new art" create new appreciators?

Through high-tech production means, will "art" proliferate

so that any one work of art has unlimited potential for reproduction?

What will become of "original" art?

Much closer to the here and now, if there are still paper calendars

— or calendars of any sort, or even a need for calendars a

thousand

years from now — will people look back at the 21st century,

wondering

what kind of art it produced and whether images of that art could

possibly interest those facing the fourth millennium? Are we glad

or sorry that we’ll probably never know the answers to these

next-millennium

questions? For now, how exciting to think that some artists we know

or admire today may go on to become exponents of 21st century art,

and maybe, way down the road, figure in some Year 3000 calendar.
