Larry Rivers and Frank O’Hara: Stones

Reva and David Logan Gallery of Illustrated Books
April 4, 2015August 2, 2015

Tatyana Grosman founded Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in 1957 to produce artists’ books in the style of classic European livres d’artistes, many of which resulted from close collaborations between an artist and author. For her first important project, she selected Larry Rivers (American, 1923–2002), an apt choice since many of his friends were writers and poets, including the celebrated Frank O’Hara (American, 1926–1966), whom the artist chose as a partner for this portfolio.

The Rococo brought the garden indoors, and the French royal factories of Vincennes and Sèvres created porcelain flowers to capture this fleeting new naturalism. They also invented vases, pots, and tubs both for real and for porcelain flowers, and containers either for growing plants and bulbs, or for floral perfumes and potpourri. Models were adapted with the seasons, and could be found displayed in private and public rooms, on chimney pieces, pier tables or commodes, or decorating dining tables. Sèvres embraced and enhanced the passing beauty of real flowers with their magical permanence
