Two articles by Jerry Weiss will appear in the September 2015 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. For his monthly “Master Class” column, Weiss writes about how Paul Gauguin’s “outrageous life found a measure of equanimity in art.” The article, “Extracting Calm from Chaos,”  is available to read here as a PDF (page 1 and page 2). Weiss’s second article, “An Insolent Kind of Magnificence,” is a richly illustrated extended review of the Metropolitan Museum’s current exhibition “Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends,” which you can read here (page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4, page 5, page 7, page 7, and page 8).
