A Collection of Walter Parke




Libby Pattishall, a former student of Walter Parke, 
has just sent us photos of her collection of his work.

Wow!








I hadn't expected such variety in his work












This one belongs to the early 19th C.





Whenever art returns
to being about something
more important
than itself,
Walter Parke will be much better known
than he is today.

What do you mean by "to being about something more important than itself"?

Over the past hundred years, the question "can this be art?" has become more important than questions like "what does XXX" look like.

So artists have been offering things that might make that question interesting.

But eventually, like every other ideology, this one will run out of steam.
