Timken Museum of Art

Timken Museum of Art The Timken Museum of Art preserves the Putnam Foundation's collection of European and American art for the education and benefit of present and future generations of San Diego area residents and visitors.
(169)

And it is FREE! Affectionately known as the โ€œjewel boxโ€ of fine art, the Timken is home to the Putnam Foundationโ€™s world-class collection of European and American masterpieces and Russian icons. Artists represented include Rembrandt, Rubens, Fragonard, Bierstadt, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, John Singleton Copley, and Eastman Johnson. Designed by San Diego architect John Mock for Frank L. Hope and Associates, the museum building is considered one of the most important examples of mid-century southern California modernism, and one of the finest regional examples of the International Style in the United States.

Can you picture this piece in its original state, the central element in a highly elaborate altarpiece? When standing in front of it, you feel its imposing presence before you, reaching five feet tall. The single white rose that extends from Christ's hand is central. What does it mean? Find this and more of the hidden symbolism with our Curator Derrick R. Cartwright, in this latest Work of the Week.

A feature of New Formalism, the architectural style of our building, is the use of traditional materials. So for today's #ModernistMonday, we're highlighting one material of our building's classical palette: the stunning veneer and base, made of travertine.

๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ, a limestone that the Romans called "lapis Tiburtinus", is a sedimentary stone made essentially of calcite, deposited by calcareous waters. Its color is whitish, slightly yellow, or reddish and it embodies the classic stone aesthetic found in ancient Roman monuments. Our building's travertine was imported from Italy, and it is this same material that comprises the ancient Roman Colosseum. The stone can stand a pressure of nearly 500 lbs, depending on its quality, and was used for the Colosseum's main pillars, ground floor, and external wall. It is estimated 3,531,467 cubic feet of Travertine line the Colosseum's outer wall.

Pictured here is the Colosseum and our building's exterior side-by-side. The travertine, as can be seen, will stand the test of time.

12/06/2020

On this cold morning, we take comfort and culinary inspiration in the passage of time celebrated in Jacques-Louis David's painting, "Portrait of Cooper Penrose". David paints his distinguished subject with noted grace, using little ornamentation to distract the viewer from Cooper Penrose's age. The effect is an homage to a full life and passage of time.

It seems only befitting then to pair this portrait with a classic French Onion Soup recipe. Time is the essential ingredient, a necessity to coaxing out the refined flavors of red wine, beef broth, and caramelized onions. Simple yet sophisticated. A fitting tribute to David's masterpiece.

Albert Frey, an American architect from Switzerland, is often called "the father of desert modernism". He was a key figure in the Mid-Century Modern boom in Palm Springs. The house pictured here is his quite famous second Palm Springs residence: "Frey House II", perched atop the San Jacinto Mountains, overlooking the Coachella Valley.

Frey completed the house in 1963, masterfully utilizing the mid-century modernesque blend between interior and exterior concept. The house has many walls of glass, and most famously, an enormous boulder protruding through a glass wall that serves as the home's natural partition between the living room and bedroom. The Palm Springs Art Museum currently owns the house, and tours plus lectures are usually prominent in February for Modernism Week. #modernistmonday

In the words of our Chairman, Jessie J. Knight, Jr.: โ€œThe Timken and Putnam families, innovators themselves, created our free museum in 1965 as a result of their successes in technology and engineering. In fact, their work revolutionized the transportation and beverage industries." ๐Ÿ’ก Today for #FlashbackFriday we'll focus on one of the various revolutionary inventions that come to us from the Putnam Family -- ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘™๐‘–๐‘”โ„Ž๐‘ก๐‘›๐‘–๐‘›๐‘” ๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘œ๐‘๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ.

From 1859 - 1882, Henry W. Putnam received 3 patents leading up to his "Lighting" Stopper, an improved stopper for jars, bottles, and other vessels, and the most successful competitor to the Mason jar's screw lid. It was even identified as โ€œthe standard used on corked beer bottles during the 1860s and 1870s.โ€ You may even see them today, as resealable carafes have become popular in most restaurants.

๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐˜€: a wire arrangement holds a cork in place after being placed in the mouth of a bottle. The device is simple and efficient โ€“ and could be reused.

On this Thanksgiving holiday, we'd like to offer a note of gratitude. This has been a difficultย year forย many. It has caused us to face challenges, redefine work, education, and recreation.

But through it all, we have found in the deep wellspring of the arts, the strength of our creative spirit, sparking refuge, and hope. Whether in the eyes of our loved ones, the kindness of a friend, or a single flowering bud, we have found so much to be grateful for. Thank you for bringing us into your homes, and inspiring us to evolve and adapt our mission. We wish you health and happiness, now and always.

11/22/2020

With the Thanksgiving holiday almost upon us, we would be remiss not to recreate the most literal culinary representation of the Timken collection, Eastman Johnson's "The Cranberry Harvest" with this Cranberry Cobbler. Johnson's homage to the holiday staple can be found in his work and personal letters. In fact, Johnson once proclaimed himself afflicted with "cranberry fever".

Cranberry dishes have evolved since Johnson's time but this classic recipe seems best suited for the painting. Signature deep crimson berries are contrasted by caramelized sugar and butter. Baked to perfection, the cobbler is then finished with an orange glaze to deepen the golden color. A dessert inspired by the Nantucket cranberry bog and harvest season.

Taken from Luke 15:11- 32, the parable portrayed in each of these paintings tells of a younger son who squanders his share of the family's estate and returns home to beg his father's forgiveness. Each of these selected works chose to show the story's climax: the moment when the impoverished son is welcomed with compassion by his father.

How is COVID-19 affecting the Timken?
It's collection
I most recently enjoyed a lovely week in San Diego with my husband, an attorney, and my 6 year old child while on business. It was a simply delightful time, until we made a stop at your museum prior to catching our flight home yesterday. One of your docents took it upon herself to guide my newly 6 year old child from where we were standing to a different room to explain to her the concept of "vanitas" - specifically the permanence and inevitability of death, by showing her a lovely, -however dark - piece NOT appropriate for her age. She then guided my child over to another painting of a child bride who became widowed, asking my child's age, then explaining children were married at my child's age. She plainly explained that this child, like her, had become a widow by suffering loss - again focusing on the theme of death, focusing on the dark ribbons on the child's dress, signaling death, again with zero sense of sensitivity to my child's age or understanding. My child was visibly shaken and confused by the offering, yet the docent continued with her "education." Of all the beautiful pieces in the collections being shown that day, could she not have shown us something more lighthearted, suitable to a 6 year old and and less macabre? Given your impressive and untarnished reputation, I would hope you would consider retraining your staff in sensitivity. While art is something to be enjoyed by all ages, to introduce and repeat, with emphasis, the adult concept of death to a malleable and developing mind is at best - insensitive and crude and, at a minimum, reckless. It is my understanding that there was a children's scavenger hunt offered that day? My hope is that this was an isolated incident. For the aforementioned reasons, I would not recommend your museum to families.
POETS WITHOUT BORDERS Featuring Beat Poet Laureate Chris Vannoy, National Slam Poetry Champion Viet Mai, Taco Shop Poetess Jackie Lopez, Izzy Blaze, Yvonne King & Igor Goldkind Will Perform at the Mesa College Gallery Reception for Mario Torero: "Artivismo Loko" Mario Torero is an internationally renowned muralist and a legend of the Chicano community. The title of the exhibition includes a term that Torero coined: โ€œartivismโ€ as the marriage of art and activism. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS is Chris Vannoy, Viet Mai, Yvonne King, Izzy Blaze, Jackie Lopez, Igor Goldkind, a gipsy band of poets inspired by and dedicated to the Artivist vision inspired by artist/muralist Mario Torero. By using both visual and literary arts to promote progressive social change and voice resistance to injustice. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS promotes the higher values of Freedom, Justice, Liberty, Planetary Sustainability and Human Rights. Mainly by actively bringing art back to the public sphere: where we live, where we eat and where we recreate. We also think Poetry is better than prayer because you donโ€™t have to pretend that someone is listening. Mesa College Art Gallery: 619 388-2829 Poets Without Borders: Igor Goldkind 858 349 6429
