Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1944) is the original classic cartoon version of this endearing Christmas tale, which was created by Max Fleischer two decades before Rudolph came to the small screen.  Johnny Marks’ infectious song leads into the well-known story of Santa’s winter weather troubles and how the bullied little deer saved the night.  The other reindeer in Christmastown don’t make Rudolph feel very welcome, constantly making fun of his shiny red nose.  But when terrible weather threatens to keep Santa Claus from making his annual toy-giving rounds, Rudolph is added to the team precisely for that bright nose, which guides Santa’s sleigh through the skies like a beacon in the night.

Fay Ray: William Wegman’s Narrative Portraits of Fay

Fay Ray is a collection of William Wegman’s remarkable portraits of his dogs, focusing on his Weimaraner Fay Ray, and her progeny.  Wegman’s photographs, videotapes, paintings and drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally.  Numerous traveling retrospectives of Wegman’s work have been organized over the past three decades.

The photographs in this collection are gorgeous; Fay’s grace permeates the photographs with an unexpected dignity.  For example, Fay transforms Zebra from a simple photograph of a dog in a cardigan to an abstract piece that contrasts animals dressed as humans with animals dressed as other animals; the simplicity of the portrait Entabled brings to mind classical Greek nudes.
