Art

Master caster.

Artist Tom Corbin’s studio, Corbin Bronze, buzzes with energy. The space, a converted Rosedale, Kansas, firehouse built in 1912, doubles as gallery and showroom, filled with Corbin artwork: paintings, bronze sculptures, and furniture.

Anything but formulaic.

Blending its sharp glassy angles into the Meatpacking District, the new Whitney Museum of American Art has shed its reputation among locals as the big grey box on the Upper East Side and put $422 million (U.S.) into a new building that appears to extend the look of the High Line out toward the Hudson River.

Fit for a king.

The Château de Versailles features the ultimate formal French garden, created with geometric precision. Long walks are lined with statues, pools and waterways abound, vistas are—literally—king-sized.

The horseman.

Normand Latourelle strides into one of the white tents anchored near the shores of Lake Ontario, where the members of his multinational equestrian spectacular, Odysseo, are having lunch. He is all smiles, even as he acknowledges that he can’t remember anyone’s name.

Art and empire.

Bob Rennie’s love of art and his passion for collecting were sparked on a trip to San Francisco in 1974.

Analogue download.

In 2009, inspired by his daily encounters with torrent download status bars, Brent Wadden decided to begin a project depicting this routine part of his life. And so he turned to weaving.

Achieving the Max.

Walking into Max Lamb’s studio in North London, England, the first visible item is a seat hewn from the trunk of a tree. It is classic Lamb: raw, powerful, uncompromising, and yet deceptively simple.

Master of style.

A model shot against a dim backdrop wearing a corset that’s come undone is perhaps one of the most recognizable photographs of the twentieth century. Despite its enduring popularity, one doesn’t often, if at all, associate the iconic image with its auteur, Horst P. Horst.
