Re: Milbach on Cherny, 'Victor Arnautoff and the Politics of Art'

What an absolutely interesting life story. As art history becomes more and more cognizant of its global histories, I hope we learn more about artists like Arnautoff who worked on multiple continents and within transnational networks that drew on political and artistic, rather than national, affinities. I can imagine including Arnautoff's Coit Tower murals alongside Rivera and AKhRR in a classroom discussion of realisms social and socialist, though it sounds like his later mosaic work in the Soviet Union would make an interesting study as well.
