About: In the history of photography, Anne Noggle (1922–2005) stands alone among the great American photographers for her powerful, wry portraits and self- portraits of aging women and women’s bodies—as Noggle called it, “the saga of fallen flesh.” Suffusing Noggle’s photographs are her profound joie de vivre, humor, and defiant humanism. Noggle’s unique vision shaped the medium in ways that have yet to be adequately acknowledged—this new book seeks to underscore the impact and lasting influence of this unconventional photographer.


Saturday, November 9

Exhibition of Hans Paap (1890-1976)  at the Matteucci Gallery
Time: 4 p.m.
Location: 1075 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501

The Matteucci gallery’s premier exhibition of Hans Paap (1890-1976), world traveler and gifted painter. This exhibition features his distinctive and far-reaching achievements in portraiture and landscape paintings from the Southwestern United States, Europe, South America, and beyond. We hope you will have a chance to see these exceptional paintings, many of which have never before been offered for sale. This exhibition opens on November 9, and the work will remain on display through December 6, 2019.



This week’s highlight comes via broker Cathy Griffith—
Today Cathy introduced Ricky to one of her new Santa Fe finds.  It was a rare opportunity that we actually both had time to grab a quick lunch. (almost like a unicorn sighting—or an empty Cerrillos Blvd!)

Madame Matisse opened about 6 months ago.  It is located just off of Cerrillos. You will forget about any slight “traffic” you experience  to get there once you discover the deliciousness that awaits!

Owned by JJ and her husband, head chef Eric, (who for 19 years owned a restaurant on Sunset Blvd in LA —the real one—not Los Alamos) the couple’s French Bistro is perfection.
The space is beautiful, welcoming and cozy and the service cheerful and attentive.  But its’s the food—OH MY, or, Ohh La La!  Breakfast and lunch—omelets, Benedict’s, eggs, house-made pastries, oatmeal, acai, crepes, quiches sandwiches, salads, soups….. and, did I say, pastries made daily and desserts.

Cathy is not embarrassed (well, perhaps a little….) that today’s visit was her third, in less than a week.  And Ricky paid—can it get any better?!?

Check out Madame Matisse—you’ll be happy you did.  Please tell JJ we sent you.  You’ll get her beautiful smile as a thank you!
