I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for Dylan Stone’s remarkable watercolor painting, Barbara and David Stone’s Bookshelf. Jerry Saltz describes it as “a huge, indexical, magical, and magnificent example of abstract portraiture and self-portraiture. We see a wall-filling, multipaneled watercolor, based on a photograph of his parents’ library. The books suggest intellectuals or academics. It turns out, Stone’s parents produced some of the art world’s greatest experimental films. The overall effect is a mesmerizing tour de force of verisimilitude, love, and intimidation.” On 29 April, Stone will alphabetize The Rare Book Room at the Strand Book Store from 9:30 AM to 8:00 PM.
