City Nights . . .

The Theater of the Streets


In Manhattan you may find theater in the streets, whether on Broadway or Times Square or in the Subway stations.

But especially in the Theater District you will certainly find the limelight.

Memory is a Potent Muse


In a complex still life entitled Past Performances, statues, clippings, eyeglasses and other small possessions collectively constitute a memorial portrait of the sculptor Charles O'Keefe.

The tableau stands in direct opposition to the vanitas tradition. In lieu of suggesting that all things pass, the props Heise painted remind us that art lasts.

Far from preaching momento mori, Heise's work invites us to remember life, and to cherish it.

-- Gerard Haggerty
