Karl Knaths

WikipediaKarl Knaths was an American artist whose personal approach to the Cubist aesthetic led him to create paintings which, while abstract, contained readily identifiable subjects. In addition to the Cubist painters, his work shows influence by Paul Cézanne, Wassily Kandinsky, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Paul Klee, Stuart Davis, and Agnes Weinrich. It is nonetheless, in use of heavy line, rendering of depth, disciplined treatment of color, and architecture of planes, distinctly his own.

Museum of Modern Art, New York City


Oldenburg spent the summer of 1960 in the historic seaside town of Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he underwent what he would later call "an obliteration by non-city nature of my involvement with the city street." Despite setting aside the theme of the street, Oldenburg retained his interest in making art from what he termed "anti-art materials," swapping cardboard and burlap for driftwood salvaged from the shore. Drawing on the cultural significance of Provincetown as the site of the Pilgrims' first landing in North America (before they moved on to Plymouth), Oldenburg cobbled driftwood into constructions featuring forms of the American flag. He described these assemblages in his notes as "souvenirs," a label that hints at his particular interest in Provincetown as, he wrote, "a town so focused on the commercialization of patriotism and history."

GLORIA VINCI NARDIN WATTS October 23, 1921 - February 05, 2018

Gloria Vinci Nardin Watts

It is with profound and deep love and sadness that we share the news of Gloria's quiet and calm passing at home today, Monday February 5, at 2 PM. Her husband Peter Watts has been continually by her side and has asked for privacy for a while.

Gloria was one of the most extraordinary people that we both, and so many others, have ever had the joy of calling a dear friend. She was a devoted mother to four children, Terry, Doya, Todd and Rani, and several grand and great grand children.

Gloria was a world traveller who spent most of her life in New York City and Wellfleet. She was a painter, a photographer, an avid reader, a terrific story teller, a remarkable cook, and a beautiful, generous and loving soul. She is a fine example of a life well lived.

Painting by Hawthorne


We were recently visiting Truro for family beach camping trip and I am sorry that I missed getting to Town Hall in Ptown to see the Hawthorne paintings.

In viewing the online sites and collections related I realized that it might be inspiring and worthwhile to share this painting and story with you and whomever is involved in preserving and documenting the Hawthorne collection.

My grandfather, a cellist from New York, Leo Tushnett, befriended Hawthorne as a young man while visiting Provincetown in early 1900's and had this portrait done by Hawthorne in exchange for Cello lessons. So the story goes... my dates may be slightly off but we thought the friendship and musical exchange was worthy of documentation as well as the very stunning and authentic Hawthorne portrait which we enjoy and treasure at my mothers home. If you are interested in any further information or pics; feell free to contact me here.

Thank you for keeping these beautifull paintings alive and well.
