Sights of Springfield, Mass

Every time I see this sign (which is often, as it’s across from our street), I half expect it to start spinning around and kick off a Monty Python sequence.

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features art historian Jonathan Brown.
Widely considered the top Hispanist in the world, Brown has written a new memoir titled “In the Shadow of Velazquez: A Life in Art History.” In the book Brown starts at the beginning of his life, as the child of contemporary art collectors in Springfield, Mass., continues through his discovery of Spain, Spanish art, and artists such as Ribera, El Greco and, of course, Diego Velazquez. It’s a lively story of discovery and engagement that might alternatively titled ‘Letters to a Young Art Historian.’ Published by Yale University Press, the book will be available early next month. Amazon offers it now for $36.
Brown’s previous books include tomes on Velazquez, Goya, Murillo, the Spanish Habsburg Court, Zurbaran and the Yale University Press Pelican History of Art that covers Spanish art from 1500-1700. Later this year Yale will publish “Painting in Latin America, 1550-1820,” which Brown co-wrote with Luisa Elena Alcala.
This is The Astronomer (1638) a Ribera that Brown likely saw at the Worcester Art Museum when he was growing up. MAN Podcast host Tyler Green asked Brown about this painting on this week’s show.

Even though the soldiers had to eventually turn their guns in, many still took the time to decorate them. #civilwar #springfieldarmory #springfieldma
