    Niels Ryberg with his Son Johan Christian and his Daughter-in-Law Engelke, née Falbe, oil painting by Jens Juel, 1797. Statens Museum for Kunst, smk.dk.

    Niels Ryberg looks both proud and affectionate towards his son and his son’s wife. I’m in love with her outfit- it looks comfortable and elegant, from her pink parasol down to the pointy toes of her yellow shoes.

    "I love that [Kiki Smith] is making art 24 hours a day. It’s this really seamless experience for her, that there’s no border between going to the studio and making artwork. It’s just natural."
    —Sue Patterson, a former project manager at The Fabric Workshop and Museum, on working with Kiki Smith

    In a new episode from Art21’s Exclusive series, artist Kiki Smith discusses the housewares and other everyday objects that she created for her 2002 solo exhibition Homework at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia.
