Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco M.H. de Young Memorial Museum acquires Candlesticks, Books, Flowers, and Fruit

A gift from Dorothy Saxe in honor of John Buchanan, contemporary glass artist Beth Lipman’s Candlesticks, Books, Flowers and Fruit (2010) is installed as a dramatic centerpiece of Gallery 25 at the de Young, which features our nineteenth-century trompe l’oeil paintings. By placing Lipman's sculpture, along with works by contemporary artists such as Richard Shaw (b. 1941) and David Regan (b. 1964), in a gallery of predominantly nineteenth-century still lives, we underscore the persistent resonance of the still life genre, which can reflect both an artist’s mastery of technique and the philosophical, spiritual, or moral questions of an age.
