In the late 1920s, Freedlander was asked by the City of New York to design a series of traffic lights for Fifth Avenue. The first, completed in 1931, was installed at 41st Street and Fifth, and 103 others followed between 8th and 59th Streets. Each traffic light was topped by a bronze statuette of Mercury. When the lamp posts were replaced in the 1960s most of the Mercurys were destroyed.
.
Several survived. Two are at the Museum of the City of New York, one is in the office of the Fifth Avenue Association and a few exist in private collections. Ours was in the family of City worker who kept it for decades.

Daniel Celentano at the age of twelve was Thomas Hart Benton's first and youngest student. Celentano often focused on the Italian neighborhood of New York City where he was born and raised as the subject matter of his drawings, paintings and murals.
.
He enjoyed an active career, exhibiting at all the major museums as an accomplished American Scene painter during the WPA and WWII era. His first one-man show was held in 1939 at the Walker Art Galleries. At the start of WWII, Celentano went to work at the Grumman Aircraft Plant, where he executed a mural on The Story of Flight.
.
We live with several drawings and oils by Celentano that we adore. The artist was introduced to us by the great dealer Janet Marqusee.

Coney Island. Bemelsmans. Historic.

Ludwig Bemelmans (1898 – 1962), “Coney Island,” 35 x 27 inches. Oil on board. Signed lower left. Original frame.

This painting is for sale.

.
and we are an artsy dealer: https://www.artsy.net/helicline-fine-art/artists.
.
Bemelmans was known for his “Madeline” series, which began in 1939. He was born in Austria and emigrated to New York in 1914 where he became an illustrator for The New Yorker, Vogue and Holiday magazines. He was also a painter and this work, “Coney Island,” is born of his love for his adopted home, New York City.
.
When we showed the artist’s grandson the painting he immediately remarked about the frame as he knew it from many of his grandfather's works. Bemelmans used this same Coney Island inspiration for the July 3, 1948 New Yorker cover he painted.

Margaret Bourke-White was
the iconic photographer and chronicler of American life for much of the 20th Century, Bourke-White broke boundaries as a woman and as an artist. She was a person of many firsts.
.
Bourke-White photographed the first rigid airship built in Akron, the “U.S.S. Akron,” as it emerged from the Goodyear Airdock prior to its maiden flight. The U.S. Navy had ordered the “Akron” to explore the potential of rigid airships for naval reconnaissance.  Sadly, the airship crashed just two years later.  
.
Goodyear framed prints of the image in Duralumin, the material used for the airship’s frame. A limited number were signed by Bourke-White and given to Goodyear executives, engineers and naval officers responsible for the “Akron.”  
.
We recently saw this framed photograph hanging in the Whitney Museum when we visited a recent exhibition.

We had the pleasure of knowing Joe and spent several afternoons at his apartment over what was then the 2nd Avenue Deli.
.
Joseph Solman, a pivotal figure in the development of 20th century American art, was born in Russia and emigrated to the U.S. in 1912. He studied at the National Academy of Design in the 1920s. He was an founding member of "The Ten," a group of modernists and abstractionists which included Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Ilya Bolotowsky, and Karl Knaths, who rebelled against prevailing practices of Regionalism.
.
Later, while the work of the members of "The Ten" evolved into Abstract Expressionism, Solman developed a unique style combining expressionism, abstraction, and traditional figurative painting. From 1936 to 1941, he was active in the easel division of the WPA Federal Art Project. In 1949, he was honored with a retrospective exhibition at the Phillips Memorial Gallery in Washington, D.C. and received the 1961 award in painting from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. His works are included in more than two dozen major museum collections throughout the world.

.
Louis 'Lou' Bunin was an American puppeteer, artist, and pioneer of stop-motion animation in the latter half of the 20th Century While working as a mural artist under Diego Rivera in Mexico City in 1926, Bunin created political puppet shows using marionettes including a production of Eugene O'Neill's The Hairy Ape. Photographer Tina Modotti took many pictures of Bunin and his puppets, including her renowned work, "The Hands of the Puppeteer.”
.
On his return to the U.S., Bunin created animated three-dimensional puppets to appear in the 1939 New York World's Fair in New York City. His 1943 political stop-motion satire, Bury the Axis, is well known. Later Bunin landed a job with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer where he created the stop-motion Prologue to the famed film, Ziegfeld Follies. He was subsequently fired as a casualty of McCarthyism.
.
Bunin went on to create a feature-length stop-motion animation film adaptation of Alice in Wonderland in 1949, starring Carol Marsh as a live-action Alice. A lawsuit from Walt Disney prevented it from being widely released in the U.S., so that it would not compete with Disney's forthcoming 1951 animated version. The film was recently restored with 12 additional minutes and shown at museums around the US, including ‪the Museum of Modern Art‬ in New York City.
