‘beat-up boy, football hero’ scores huge win

DALLAS – Joseph Christian Leyendecker’s Beat-up Boy, Football Hero became an auction hero at Heritage on May 7 when it shattered a previous world record by the artist after a bidding war. The painting, which appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post on Nov. 21, 1914, sold for $4.12 million, shattering the previous record for a Leyendecker original set in December, when Sotheby’s sold his 1930 work Carousel Ride for $516,100. The painting by the influential illustrator was a centerpiece of Heritage Auctions’ American Art Signature Auction, alongside masterworks by such revered names as Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt and Norman Rockwell. Numerous records for several significant artists were set throughout the day, as the total for the nearly sold-out American art event surpassed the $10.7 million mark – the first American…

it all adds up. . . when math and art intersect

Mr. Justen, the whole freshman Algebra thing? It wasn’t you. It was me. Mrs. Retzner, gosh, Geometry. Um, the Pythagorean theorem. That was sort of cool. The rest? I should have probably paid more attention. And Mr. Siewert. Yeah, well, Advanced Algebra. Huh. A bit optimistic, wasn’t I? Everyone said it would help me in college. It didn’t. I had no real chance of anything but a mercy “C” from you. Thanks. Let’s just chalk that one up to senioritis and move on, shall we? Truth is, as the great pop culture icon Teen Talk Barbie pointed out in 1992, “Math class is tough.” It sure was for me, Babs. I was reminded of that – and my many failings with my former high school math teachers – when talking with Melanie Hartman, the Director…

it’s the real thing pouring one out for coke

In 1933 Everett Worthington of Chicago was issued design patent No. 90,744 for a beverage-dispensing device that he assigned to the Coca-Cola Co. of Atlanta. Until then, if you ordered a Coke at a soda fountain, your server pumped syrup into a glass and topped it off with cold seltzer. Although Coca-Cola distributed glassware that showed how much syrup to use, the process still tended to make the drink vary widely from place to place, both in flavor and temperature. That all changed at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair Century of Progress Exposition when Coca-Cola introduced the first automatic fountain dispenser, which created a well-blended Coke with the pull of a handle. The dispenser, packed with ice, revolutionized the soda industry by making the perfect “ice-cold Coca-Cola.” The machine was manufactured by the…
