the hammer of yore

‘EIGHTY-NINEper cent of the copper that has been dug out of the ground since civilisation began is still in circulation,’ Michael Johnson assures me. A large quantity of the red metal can be found in his workshop, a long, low room in the same granite fish-loft on Champion Quay above the harbour where Newlyn’s original copper works was housed. This is an industrial environment constructed for hard work. In the yard below, the rubber-booted, aproned employees of Trelawney Fish hoist refrigerated boxes on to fork-lifts while Bowie blares from the radio. Part of Michael’s life resembles that of a village blacksmith, carrying out repairs for local fishermen, who often pay him in kind. New lyn’s tradition of copper work began in the 1890s with the Arts and Crafts movement, when CR…

ART FOR ALL: THE COLOUR WOODCUT IN VIENNA AROUND 1900 (ed. Tobias G. Natter; Taschen, rrp £44.99) Art is like politics: the extremes are strikingly similar. In the case of art, this means that if you look back far enough, work can appear surprisingly modern. This is particularly clear in Taschen’s latest doorstopper, a luminous catalogue of prints made in Vienna at the turn of the 20th century. The artists in question – Koloman Moser, Carl Moll, Emil Orlik, Ludwig Hein rich Jungnickel and others – are often overlooked, having been eclipsed by their celebrated contemporaries Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka.

serious pursuits

By 1977, Henry Moore was arguably the country’s most important sculptor, rich from commissions that saw his sensual, suggestive bronzes populating public parks, plazas and important museums across the globe, from San Francisco to Stevenage. But the artist – frugal and grateful for the support he had received early in his career, sparing him the life of a Yorkshire pitman – directed his wealth into setting up an eponymous foundation designed to encourage the public’s appreciation of art. This April, celebrating the establishment’s 40th birthday, the sculptor’s studios and gardens in Perry Green, Hertford shire (WoI Oct 2007), will reopen on 14 APRIL following a major redevelopment by Hugh Broughton Architects, with a new shop, visitor centre and café overlooking the lush sculpture garden. Marking the launch, a spectacular exhibition,…
