Just came across this 1938 drawing by Milton Horn (born 1906) -- and it occurred to me that it exemplifies the organization of space --- as an architect does -- rather than the accurate mapping of an image or anatomical structures -- as practiced by my sworn enemies, the neo-realists.
O.K. -- I'm being over-dramatic here -- nothing is my enemy except entropy -- but what I'm calling "neo-realism" seems to be the dominant trend in the recovery from the mid-century crash of European visual high-culture.
And, of course, this drawing also exemplifies the "New York Heavy Figure School" (Zorach, Lachaise etc) -- i.e. a certain approach to the young female figure that is very different from the Hungarian's shown in my last post.
Here's one of Horn's Christmas cards (undated) that, though a very casual drawing , really emphasizes that worshipful attitude towards an all-powerful femininity that I also blogged about here
For this group of artist/visionaries, this was the emergence of the great Goddess -- no less powerful than when she appeared in the 13th Century -- but no longer a virgin.
