Reynolds lady Halliday.jpg

Lady Jane Halliday
Joshua Reynolds

One of the advantages of retrospectives and large collections of a single artist is that one can see how the artist's perspective and technique and hell, emotional outlook changed over the years.

One of the things I noticed about Reynolds was that the more intimate the painting was, the more interesting it seemed. The one I posted is grand and bold with lovely colors, but the old lady just seems like some random toff (no, I don't know the feminine equivalent) he scooped up for a sitting. Nothing unique or interesting at all. But his closer portraits reveal a better and more perceptive artist.

Or he said to himself, "fvck it, Lord Halliday is a bit of an inbred retard and won't know the difference."

But then I was disappointed when the email then says "for female founded and led organizations." Not very inclusive, I think. Bummer.

So I go to delete it and I see this at the bottom of the email: "Apple believes that gender expression is a fundamental right. We welcome all women to apply to this program."

Now I'm back to wondering....do I just apply as a woman?

Sadly, nothing can be legally done to prevent this from happening in the future: it's California (which is entirely within the Ninth Circus' jurisdiction). I imagine that you could purge voter rolls and monitoring the vote tabulation in other states to prevent it from happening there, but the Land of Fruit and Nuts is entirely hopeless in this regard.

98 More Google-fu says he's also NeoClassical. If so, it was during his later life. I don't know the date on this one, but it looks like there might be a mix of different ideas here, Baroque, Neoclassical, and a hint of Rococo, plus his weather-scapes combined with a classical figure. Artists didn't have to stay with one movement or the other, they did experiment here and there, especially as tastes changed, as they did during Reynolds' time. He was a very successful and well-respected Academician. He could do almost anything he wanted.

I've pondered this since the topic came up yesterday.

Seemed like Trump shit-canned Sessions as soon as he got the mid-term results, and could count 34 Senators that would not vote to remove him.

Maybe the math doesn't work out for this. Or maybe - and we're screwed if this is true - Trump falls into the group of those that refuse to expose the FBI in order to save the FBI as is.

We know that Trump has the Obey the Court reflex. Maybe that extends to the FBI as well.

148 "One of the things I noticed about Reynolds was that the more intimate the painting was, the more interesting it seemed."
I've noticed the same phenomenon in Sargent's portraits: the more grandiose they are, the
less personality they display - though in Sargent's case, the
personality (often unpleasant) often still leaks through. Sargent's smaller, more intimate portraits often were of his friends. There, the personality, and Sargent's affection for them, shows with every brushstroke.

Reynolds was very good at painting, and very good at pleasing his customers. The lack of personality may be due to the fact that the persons who commissioned the portraits - usually wealthy, well-connected husbands - wanted a painting that would match the decor and impress the guests, rather than one that would bare the soul. My guess is that from the neck down, Lady Jane looked nothing like this; but also that her husband, who paid the artist's commission, was well pleased with it.

187 Reynolds ran his studio like a factory just as Warhol did at his 'factory' and similar to what Damien Hirst does today, with artist assistants doing the bulk of the work. Reynolds would loosely outline the overall composition but focused most of his efforts on detailing the head and face while his assistants worked body, clothing and background. He would then do the finish to ensure the overall effect was cohesive. He had one artist in his emploiy whose specialty was draperies, for example.

Not knocking Reynolds for doing this. It was the only way he could keep up with commissions, which is also similar to the problems Warhol encountered.

What was wrong with it? Yes, we've seen it adapted to film or TV 2000 times (because it's the most visual of the Holmes stories), and we've seen the trope where the supernatural threat turns out to be a hoax by the villain even more times than that. But the atmosphere, the fact that Watson seems to be learning some of Holmes's skills and is trusted by Sherlock to be his man in place during the investigation, is all grand stuff.

The style is old-fashioned; yes. Nothing wrong with that. Doyle was a very crisp writer for his time. Try some Dickens if you want looong descriptions.

Although a Holmes fan, myself, I must admit that Conan Doyle's wordsmithing dissipated in the long form. When he was confined to the limits of a short story, he was superb.

Rather like Arthur Sullivan was a genius in the context of the Savoy Operas, but sprawling and unfocused in larger works such as Ivanhoe.

The colors were probably vibrant in the first few years of the painting's existence. Reynolds was flooded with commissions, which made him a hurried technician. He took shortcuts, got careless on the finish. Some of his paintings would begin to crack immediately following completion. Letters exist of his buyers complaining about it.

Trollope. His books are strictly for reading, there seems intentionally to be no moral. He also lapses into occasional lengthy soliloquies which are amusing.

I recall of one of his characters he comments, 'We shall hear of Mr.James no more'.

Out of nowhere, in 'Barchester Towers', he comments on long-winded preachers thus:

"There is, perhaps, no greater hardship at present inflicted on mankind in civilized and free countries, than the necessity of listening to sermons. No one but a preaching clergyman has, in these realms, the power of compelling an audience to sit silent, and be tormented. No one but a preaching clergyman can revel in platitudes, truisms, and untruisms, and yet receive, as his undisputed privilege, the same respectful demeanour as though words of impassioned eloquence, or persuasive logic, fell from his lips. Let a professor of law or physic find his place in a lecture-room, and there pour forth jejune words and useless empty phrases, and he will pour them forth on empty benches. Let a barrister attempt to talk without talking well, and he will talk but seldom. … A member of Parliament can be coughed down or counted out. Town-councillors can be tabooed. But no one can rid himself of the preaching clergyman. He is the bore of the age … the nightmare that disturbs our Sunday’s rest, the incubus that overloads our religion and makes God’s service distasteful. We are not forced into church! No: but we desire more than that. We desire not to be forced to stay away. We desire, no we are resolute, to enjoy the comfort of public worship; but we desire also that we may do so without an amount of tedium which ordinary human nature cannot endure with patience; that we may be able to leave the house of God without that anxious longing for escape, which is the common consequence of common sermons."

I don't think the Chinese are inventing anything. The tech they are using is Crispr tech from the US, just now being applied to human embryos. There are Crispr tech companies all over Boston (and the US) working hard on editing human genes, for therapeutic purposes (curing diseases like ALS and Huntingtons etc).

What we don't do is human experimentation until the technology is safe for humans (the regulatory part I guess). The Chinese are just going ahead and skipping all the messy and time-consuming early stage work.

Many years ago, when I was a wee undergrad, there was a recruiter event at my school, the kinda thing where companies set up tables with their pamphlets, etc.

The FBI table had brochures with photos obviously designed to show how inclusive the modern Bureau was. Lots of handicapped women, Hispanic lesbians, left-handed Chinese people, etc.

I asked the woman running the table why they didn't use a picture of Lon Horiuchi.

I was in the hospital last January for CHF. They treated me with IV diuretics. I have never peed so much in my life. They pulled almost 20 pounds of liquid from my body in three days. And I'm not that big, either.

Now I take furosemide and I'm now rather svelte for a 29-year-old, even if I do say so myself.

The report will be released at some point. To not do it would be a political disaster for Trump with the left screaming coverup from now until the day he leaves office.

Trump has been clear since Day 1 that he has nothing to fear and won't stop the investigation prematurely. He'll probably take a few political hits from the report but there won't be any collusion.

And then he can counterattack. He likes to punch back twice as hard.

authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by
then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent
Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including



(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government

500 RE: Reynolds

"Nothing unique or interesting at all. But his closer portraits reveal a better and more perceptive artist."

Isn't that the case with most of the classic portraitists? Rembrandt may be the exception.

A perfect example are Van Dyck's cartoonish paintings of Charles I. The only interesting work of the Charles group was likely influenced by Lotto's Portrait of a Man in Three Positions, which was in Charles I's collection at this time. None of his patronage painting compares to his Iconography series.

Velázquez's portrait of Pope Innocent X was a departure from the norms and a real risk taking; but his Las Meninas is just a clever device to please his patron.

One must pay the bills and keep one's head, no?
