  1. Up at Nights

    Hiya Folks! There are nights when I stay awake, especially when looking at old files, thinking of the slides, prints and candids and all of my favorite sculpture, The Astronomer by Carl Milles that I have sold. Did I...should I have kept that U&U 8x10 I never saw before, or since? That photo of it with the demolished Perisphere...? The other? That other one? But I always come back to this...and I saved this one...take in the dimensions and spatial arrangement. If the moon were in this...and it could have been. Good heavens. Literally. And the surfaces of the Perisphere looking so fine... The people on the ...uh...Observation Bridge, tell us it is before 10 PM. Medium size, deckled edged original gelatin silver print. I don't recall 1939 or 1940. I think 1939. Color might well hurt this razor composition, but it would all be deep blue.
  2. Rocket Thrower Q

    Hello World's Fair Forum! I work for a sculpture conservation studio in NYC that has recently been awarded the contract for conservation of Donald DeLue's 43 foot tall bronze Rocket Thrower from the Court of Astronauts of the 1964/65 World's Fair. We are in the process of researching archives for original documents and/or color photos of the piece as it was during the fair, ie patina color and gold/silver leaf motif. Oddly, all archives we've searched so far have only black & white photos and no written descriptions of the color scheme. This is why we are turning to you all for help. The City Parks Department, the Art Commission and the Municipal Arts Society are requesting as much documentation as possible before a restoration scheme can be agreed upon. I'm hoping that many of you have color photos of the Rocket Thrower taken during the fair or shortly thereafter? The restoration work is scheduled to begin in Mid-September 2012, right after the close of the US Open. Any help with this mystery would be greatly appreciated! And, any photos utilized for reference will be credited before inclusion in the Parks Department Archives and used for no further purposes - all originals will be returned. Please help us with the conservation effort of this iconic 1964/65 World's Fair monument. Betsy Ceccio, Art Conservator, SAT, Inc., betsy@stevetatti.com - www.stevetatti.com
