    • Summer approximately 1934: A group exhibition-of one-man shows by nine artists will open at the Brooklyn Museum June 30th to continue through the summer. This exhibition takes the place of the regular summer show which is customary at the Museum. The exhibitors are: Mitchell Fields, Jerome Blum, Glen C. Henshaw, Frank Horowitz, Anne Neagoe, Frank Mura, Surica Singer Rein, Nita Rice and Leopold Widliska.

      The largest group is composed of the sculpture by Mitchell Fields. This is the first extensive showing of Mr. Field's work in the City, and includes thirty-three objects of sculpture in marble, bronze, terra-cotta, copper and plaster. A Guggenheim scholarship enabled Mr. Fields to spend considerable time studying and working abroad, chiefly in Paris. A figure by him received a gold medal at the Pennsylvania Academy Exhibition. Supplementing the present exhibition of sculpture; there is a small collection of the sculptor's drawings in pen and pencil. Jerome Blum shows nineteen canvases all brilliant in color and daring in composition. Arrangements in still life predominate. Glen C. Henshaw shows thirteen pastels and two oils, one of the latter is a portrait of John Noble, the painter. Henshaw, who is best known for his pastels, had his first local exhibition at the Ainslie Galleries many years ago. He recently had a one-man show in Baltimore. Mr. Frank Horowitz shows fifteen oils, five of which are portrait studies. Horowitz brings to his oil paintings the rich color that distinguishes his water colors. Anne Neagoe has fifteen oils and three sketches for a mural project. Mrs. Neagoe is a Roumanian by birth studied and painted in France where she was a student of Andre L'Hote and is the wife of Peter Neagoe, the novelist. Nita Rice shows eleven oils depicting Algerian life. Miss Rice as a student worked under Frank Horowitz. Three oils by Leppold Widliska introduce the more academic part of the exhibition. In the latter category probably belongs the work shown in the memorial exhibition shown of Surica Singer Rein. In this group there are ten oils and a series of pastel and charcoal drawings. Mrs. Rein was for many years a pupil of Frank Mura and his influence is remarkably present in her work. The phenomenal resemblance of techniques may be recognized as a group of pastels and charcoal drawings by Frank Mura hang nearby and complete the show. Mr. Mura studied for many years in Munich, Holland and England where he developed his charcoal technique. He received the highest award at the St. Louis Exposition for charcoal painting. For many years Mr. Mura has directed the Saturday class for talented high school students at the Brooklyn Museum.

    "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"
