Late de Kooning on late Matisse

Matisse, from Life Magazine Aug. 1970

Matisse, too, was often in his thoughts. He admired the graphic simplicity of La Danse, which he had often seen in the Museum of Modern Art, and he loved the spirit of the cutouts. "Lately I've been thinking," he said in 1980, "that it would be nice to be influenced by Matisse. I mean, he's so lighthearted. I have a book about how he was old and he cut out colored patterns and he made it so joyous. I would like to do that, too- not like him, but joyous, more or less."

Willem de Kooning by Linda McCartney

The Dansk Bong


Pepper Shmepper. An exciting new line of bongs with the clean, handsome look of Scandinavian design
... and a nice big party bowl.
Even though a woodshop lathe does not a Jens Quistgaard make, you've got to hand it to them.
Even the ad has the old Lou Dorfsman sensibilities.
From High Times, June 1977.

The Metropolitan Museum's Jolly door prize, 1960



1960 Fiat 500 Jolly.
Arrived in Maine in a cardboard box aboard the freight train to Portland from New York City where it had been a door prize at the Metropolitan Museum. 

How great is that? I would've been psyched to win a just a wicker chair.
