White: Another Mnemonic Monday

July 21st, 2008

Hall, uncertain as to who or where I got this. I love it as an example of contrasts of paint finishes and subtlety. The glossy warmer white trim and panelling with the cooler flat of the wall.


Again contrasts of white with the dark of the background the simplicity of a white shirt. Painting from Center 44, NYC.

Tazza. Venice. Fillagree glass. 1550-1650. Dimensions: 4.75″ H x 6″ W. What perfect proportions.


One of a pair. c 1940? I took the picture about a year ago in NYC at a shop on Bond Street. It had just arrived in and I never got the information on it.

Roman Chair, 1933. By Sir Ambrose Heal, (1872-1959).
Fiberglass Chair. 1 of a pair. Black and White. These are mine, and I can’t find any information on them.

    Handle from Dorthy Draper bureau. Wood and White Gold.

    The connotations of white are quite easy to recognize, but lets remind ourselves: Purity, death, virtue, hope, cleanliness, healing, nothingness, being, peace, absence, good, surrender, horror and unity.

    White things I love: Wall to wall bouclé, milk glass, handkerchief linen, porcelain figurines, Marston & Langinger paint color: Canvas
