« "The Book of My Enemy Has Been Remaindered" [by Clive James, 1939-2019] | Main | Balanchine Quiz [by Mindy Aloff] »

January 16, 2021


Thank you many times over for posting Vincent Katz's marvelous, illuminating two-part review of Rudy B's photographs. I knew Rudy a little from having written a New Yorker Talk story about taking a walk with him around his and Yvonne Jacquette's neighborhood. He was a terrific teacher as well as an artist of unfolding depth. For a story about the passing of Edwin Denby, for ballet-tanz, Rudy lent me some of his actual snapshot prints of Denby to scan and send to the editors in Berlin. He wanted me to hang onto the pictures; it did pass through my mind that he was trying to give them to me in return for my efforts on Denby's behalf. But then I wasn't sure and promptly, though sadly, returned them to Rudy. To run the review and, most of all, to alert readers to the show is a great public service.

Thanks for this wonderful comment, Mindy.
