    • June 16, 1927: The special summer exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum have been augmented by several new groups of paintings. One gallery is devoted to the display of a group of fifteen paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe. The subjects of these pictures are the floral and still-life arrangements with which this artist has become identified. In an adjoining room is shown a group of twelve decorative paintings by the late Charles M. Shean who was a resident of Brooklyn and one of the founders of the Mural Painters' Society. The paintings are representative of the type of work which Mr. Shean did during the latter part of his career when he had adopted a more delicate technique and scale than had characterized the mural paintings for which his career had previously been distinguished. Another group in the gallery of special exhibitions is that of a series of paintings of Alpine views, the work of Francois Gos, who is a brother of Albert Gos, the eminent Swiss artist whose works were given their first American showing at the Brooklyn Museum during the winter of 1926.

      Another special showing is that of the work of Dimitri V. Ismailovitch, which consists of a large group of drawings and paintings which accurately reproduce the frescoes and mosaics in the 14th century Church of St. Saviour (Kahrie Djami), Stamboul. The artist spent seven years in Constantinople in the making of these reproductions which are most valuable for students of Byzantine art since they show the old frescoes precisely as they appeared after the removal of the coating of whitewash which had for many years concealed them and since their position in the church renders them very difficult for visitors to examine.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
