It Is Almost That by Lotte L.S. | Poetry Foundation

What I fear most
is becoming “a poet”…
Locking myself in the room
gazing at the sea
and forgetting…

One reason Joe Brainard made so many small works was to convey that modesty and ambition were not mutually exclusive.

Le Jardin by Walton Ford


Walton Ford
Le Jardin
Paul Kasmin Gallery

For “Le Jardin,” the centerpiece of the Kasmin show, he lifted almost verbatim from the sketchbooks of George Caitlin, the American Indian painter, a scene of a blood-soaked standoff between a buffalo and a pack of white wolves.

Again life-size and produced as a triptych, this watercolor has more than one interpretation. Beyond being a nod to the vanished world of the Old West, it is a war of worlds and manners. It is a scene of incredible savagery set in a formal French garden with clipped lawns, an urn and topiary, a version of one Mr. Ford saw recently in Normandy. “I thought, ‘You take this American frontier and you bust loose,’ ” Mr. Ford said. “It’s every French person’s nightmare, and it becomes like Henry James, that conflict between European and American sensibilities.”
