DAILY PIC: A panel painted in 1914 by Vasily Kandinsky and recently on view at the Museum of Modern Art. I’ve got strange doubts about the visual (as opposed to conceptual) prowess of Kandinsky’s early abstractions, so what captivated me here wasn’t the work, but its patron: It’s one of four panels painted on commission for Edwin R. Campbell, one of the founders of Chevrolet and son-in-law of the founder of GM. My first thought was, “Wow, what an incredibly bold purchase for a stodgy auto exec.” Then I realized that, in 1914, building cars was exactly as cutting-edge as building search engines today. Chevrolet was all of three years old; GM was two years older. (© 2013 Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York / ADAGP, Paris)

ART: Myoung Ho Lee’s “Tree” Series

Seoul-based Myoung Ho Lee’s photos use a complicated process to create a simple image: trees separated from their surroundings, hinting at the world beyond. In this series, “TREE,” the “photography-act” is more than a click. The canvas that frames each tree is there by human design, turning the object into a subject, pulling it out of the landscape.
